Project Title

Development and testing of an integrated strategy to promote insect and avifauna in the Hellwegbörde in agriculture

Project description

The Hellwegbörde bird sanctuary is an important breeding and habitat area for the Montagu's harrier and other valuable open land species. To ensure the protection of endangered bird species, priority areas have been defined within the bird sanctuary in which the protection of these species is of particular importance (mapped priority areas).

Overall, the development of bird populations in NRW has been declining for years for the majority of the species present. This negative trend affects not only Red List species, but also species that are still relatively widespread today. In order to counteract this development, the EIP project Hellwegbörde aims to develop a strategy for promoting insect and avifauna that enables the integration of insect-promoting measures into the cultivation of various crops, taking into account operational requirements.
