Species action plan kick-off meeting planned for 14 March 2019

One of the most significant tasks of project “Conservation arrangements for lesser spotted eagle in Latvia” is update of the species action plan. The previous action plan was developed by Latvian Ornithological Society in 2000, but the plan was never officially apporved. Therefore it is very important to update the plan in accordance with the latest scientific findings and the current knowledge about the species and to ensure its compliance with the current legislation. The aim of the project is to develop a plan that could serve as the basis for lesser spotted eagle protection in Latvia in the next ten years. 

To inform about the activities related to species action plan process, discuss the current issues of species protection, identify the potential problems and their solutions, we invite to participate in a meeting on 14 March, 2019 at 14 pm. The meeting will take place in Nature Center of Latvia University (Jelgavas street 1, Riga) in room 702. 

The meeting will be led by Uģis Bergmanis, eagle researcher and project expert who will be in charge of species protection plan development. Also Jānis Ķuze, project leader, will participate.
