Cooperation in general
  • BL Partnersare more or less aware of otherstakeholders’ interest, however, cooperationsusuallyremainwithinthe „greencircle” – MANY commongoals, much more thanwethink.
  • MME, SOS - cooperationwithhunters is more active (notvery) and therelationship is better
  • MME - No agreedcooperationwithanglers
  • SOS - Relationships with anglers would be similar if we wouldn’t have problem “Cormorant”
positive examples of cooperation
Positive examples of cooperation
  • Great Bustard LIFE projects – Slovakia and Hungary – should be finely elaborated (raptors, hunting of red deer, etc.)
  • Cooperation in waterbird protection (SOS)
  • Participation on the international exhibition of arms, hunting and angling – N2K working group (MME)
  • Raptor poisoning – Action Plan under prep., workshops, trainings involving MME
  • Cormorant census with anglers

Shooting of protected birds

  • It is still possible to find shootee rare birds (in SPA Senné Egretta alba, Podiceps cristatus etc, in another SPAs for example Aquila heliaca). After evaluation of this cases is clear, that bird were shooted by local people which have near to hunters or they are hunters.

Shooting of protected birds – the „Italian Hunterscrisis”

- More definite and active management of theissue is needed

Hunting of waterbirds

  • At Hrušovská zdrž which is part of pSPA Dunajské Luhy and in SPA Kráľová we register using of prohibited hunting methods by Italian hunters annualy (repeating rifle, duck models and voice records), shooting of protected bird by them.
  • In the winters 2003/2004 and 2005/06, when hunting was not so intensive at Danube near Bratislava, we counted siginficantly higher numbers of Ducks and Geese here. In 2005/06 was hunting prohibited in whole Slovakia because of Avian influenza and in this year we observed the highest numbers of Anser albifrons in history in surroundings of Bratislava.

Generally restriction in NATURA 2000 for hunters are following:

  • Providing of no hunting activities in surrounding of nests of raptors and Black Stork in breeding season (SPA Tríbeč, Ondavská rovina, Košická kotlina, Bukovské vrchy. Four from 19 SPAs which are designated by public notice)
  • Providing of no hunting activities in sites important for Bustard (only in SPA Lehnice general prohibition of hunting between 16.1. and 15.5.)
  • Providing of no hunting activities for waterbirds in selected parts of waterreservoirs (in whole Slovakia almost 25 km2, what is 0,05 % of Slovak area)
  • Prohibition of use of boats in selected parts of waterreservoirs (but lot of exceptions from this prohibition are possible for hunters and anglers)
  • Some small restrictions concerning hunting methods in some areas but not hunting generaly
