CONSERVATION > BIRD BIODIVERSITY RESEARCH
During the years of 1995-2011 Sakertour has initiated and financed several expeditions to survey breeding bird populations in the Carpathian Basin. A major ornithological project is the writing and compilation of the ‘Handbook of the Birds of the Carpathain Basin’ and Sakertour financing various parts of this mega-project. The latest support was the launching of the rarebirds.hu website which is an online data collection of 35% of the birds of the Carpathian Basin. The owl boxing project financed by Sakertour also serves as a population estimate of this group at various sample sites in the region. Our guides are also very active in survey works and research projects and you can see a few sample articles by our team below.
