1st International Whinchat Symposium

Among the target species of the life Éislek projekt is the Whinchat Saxicola rubetra. The dramatic decline of this iconic and previously common species has alarm bells ringing across all countries within the Whinchat’s former range. In addition to the many direct actions that we carry out to improve the situation on the ground, our project also aims at improving communications with other conservation organisations and establishing an international network of experts. For this reason, our team will take part in the 1st International Whinchat Symposium from 28-29th May in Helmbrechts, Germany, where 35 contributions from 15 nations will look into the different reasons for the dramatic decline of the species and discuss potential conservation strategies for the future.
