New practical guide published by MedMPAnet Project Monitoring Mediterranean Lesser Crested Terns: Thalasseus bengalensis emigratus

02.12.2014

This practical guide has been elaborated in order to provide a tool which will allow adopting a coherent and safe approach to monitor breeding of the Mediterranean Lesser Crested Tern, a population of extremely high conservation value and potentially vulnerable to many sources of threat, not least monitoring itself.

Assessing changes in population size, distribution and breeding success is crucial for conservation. Hence, this practical guide attempted to gather recent experiences carried out under RAC-SPA umbrella and collaboration with the Environmental General Authority (EGA) in Libya and to produce available material for further sharing, which may ensure a correct continuation of activities in the future.
