THE BONELLI’S EAGLE DECLARED “BIRD OF THE YEAR 2005”
The conservacionist organization
SEO/Birdlife has declared the Bonelli’s Eagle (Hieraaetus
fasciatus) “bird of the year 2005”, what means that this entity
will have as one of their priorities for the next years the application
of conservation measures for this emblematic Mediterranean species.
Last years, the “Equip de Biologia
de la Conservació-Àliga perdiguera” has closely collaborated with
SEO/Birdlife in various projects of habitat management in breeding areas
of the species in the littoral sierras of Barcelona. So, it’s a good
new to know that this organization will contribute even more to the
conservation of the eagles. We hope that it will also contribute to that
many other public and private entities will involve themselves for this
So, we desire a very good year 2005
for the Bonelli’s Eagle and all the people and the entities that watch
for its conservation and their habitats.
