“PROTECTED AREAS – LIFE SAVER” is program for nature reserves and national parks in Russia and CIS countries

Programme:
“PROTECTED AREAS – LIFE SAVER”

Status: Active

Regions: Russia and CIS countries

Project Description:

The main goal of the program is to provide safety for birds, living in reference designated natural areas and being in contact with overhead power transmission lines (PTL). Unfortunately, very often these contacts turn into death of birds that has a negative impact on the biodiversity of the whole ecosystem. Of course, this problem also exists outside Protected Areas, but first and foremost it is here that it is necessary to ensure conservation of birds.
Within the framework of the program each individual project assumes passing three successive stages – research (information gathering about presence, location and extent of dangerous to birds PTL), administrative (the achievement of a positive decision of PTL owner about implementing necessary protective measures), technical (installation of manufacturing equipment and assessment of the efficiency of the performed work). At each of these stages program sponsors provide participants with the opportunity of necessary consultations with experts in this field (composition of expert council). Within the program the purchase and delivery of manufacturer bird guard devices is available on favorable terms.
The program “PROTECTED AREAS – LIFE SAVER” is a public initiative, based on positive experience of engineering and technical protection of wildlife in a number of Protected Areas in Russia and abroad. The program is implemented by Russian Raptor Research and Conservation Network, Ecocenter “Dront,” the Association of birdwatchers, State Nature Biosphere Reserve “Kerzhenski”, National Park “Smolny” with the support of “IzoTehnoServis” LLC.
