Objectives and results of the action:
The main objectives of the project are:
• to reduce mortality rates which relate to hunting along the European flyway, considered to date as the most significant threat for the species
• to provide suitable foraging and roosting habitats for the species in wintering and staging grounds
• to increase knowledge and awareness of the species in wintering and staging grounds
• to maximize international co-operation and networking in countries hosting key wintering/staging grounds along the European flyway of the species

In order to succeed in the conservation of the LWfG, efforts require a flyway approach. Thus, the project involves eight partner organisations from four European countries along the flyway. The multi-national and multi-institutional partnership plays a key role in the project. The project will undertake concrete actions in seven NATURA 2000 sites in Greece, Bulgaria and Hungary.
