Our main goal is to protect the habitats surrounding us and help several key species to survive. We continuously monitoring different protected species and participating in local and European environmental projects. Our Czech, Slovakian and Hungarian friends with our help have been carrying out a massive Nestbox Project for Eurasian Rollers, European Hoopoes, Little & Scops Owls and creating nesting possibilities for different raptor species, including Saker Falcon, White-tailed Eagle, Red-footed Falcon and more. During the years more than 400 nestboxes were created, put out, controlled, cleaned and maintained. This resulted a significant growth especially for the Roller population, not just locally, but countrywise.
