Conservation of endangered species
The conservation of threatened species can be approached in several complementary ways. Some of these strategies are the legal protection of the species, the designation of protected areas, the sustainable land-use planning or the implementation of specific measures to mitigate factors threatening the species. Indeed, scientific research carried out within the framework of the ecology of populations and communities provides us precise information on the factors that affect certain threatened species.
The scientific research oriented to the conservation of endangered species aims to offer practical and concrete tools so that the administrations and managers responsible for the nature conservation may act on the main causes that affect the endangered populations. In this sense, we work to guide on the priority measures for the conservation of the Bonelli’s eagle population, both at the population level and at the territorial scale, and on tools to mitigate the negative impact of power lines on birds, one of the main threats that affect many bird species around the world.
