The last voulture in Albania
The TV reportage "Shqipëria Tjetër” (Eng: "Other side of Albania”), broadcasted this Monday in the National TV "Top Channel” had in focus the state of vultures population in Albania, in the past being a family of four species whereas now: only one of the species is still nesting in Albania – the Egyptian vulture, and the three others are considered extinct. In the focus of this reportage are vultures, but in the background might be clearly seen the deteriorated state of natural environment in Albania, one of the most important assets where can be based the sustainable social and economic development of the country. Once upon a time, vultures were bringing the spring in Albania, whereas now the spring comes and goes without vultures, in the major part of the territory. All those which save still fresh memories of that time, have felt nostalgic when seeing this reportage, whereas the ...

PPNEA mesage for World Environment Day
June 5th, each year brings two celebrations for us at PPNEA: the World day of Environment and the anniversary of the organization establishment, which this year is the 24th. World Day of Environment has been established in year 1972, and since that time is celebrated worldwide every year. The theme for this year is how the well-being of humanity, the environment and economies ultimately depend on the responsible management of the planet’s natural resources. Evidence is building that people are consuming far more natural resources than what the planet can sustainably provide. Along the last 25 years, the environment in Albania has been continuously haggled, including destruction of habitats and ecosystems, persecution of fauna, chemical pollution of natural resources and destruction of natural landscapes. Maim which is unfortunately still continuing, when thinking about the uncontrolled construction of hydro-power plants in every river and stream of the country, illegal construction in ...

Public request to extend the hunting ban period
PPNEA believes that the implementation of the hunting ban is a necessary measure for the regeneration of wild fauna. A two year moratorium on hunting was approved by the government of Albania in January 2014. PPNEA in the frame of the "Wetland Management and Dalmatian pelican Conservation in the Mediterranean Basin" program has conducted a monitoring of the pelican colony and hunting ban implementation in Divjaka - Karavasta National Park. This monitoring revealed positive results for the Dalmatian pelican population and in general the total number of bird species has increased. However the hunting data shows that during January to March illegal  hunters have not disappeared form the area. These data have been shared with the broader public during the press conference organized by PPNEA on 25th of March. Based on the results a public request has been made to extend the hunting ban for at least one more year.

Balkan lynx and the box trap
Could have been the first case…two lynx captured in one box-trap! Instead, they went out the same way they went in, and not crossing the middle where the triggering thread is placed. However unfortunate this miss-capture might seems, the fact that there are two individuals, and perhaps mother with a last-year-cub, is of a great importance for the Balkan Lynx Recovery Programme. Enjoy the video.
