Project activities were aimed at:

  • securing the best possible conservation status and upgrading the quality of the habitats of the target butterfly species by removing shrubs and re-sprouts, restoring destroyed habitats and ensuring appropriate hydrological conditions;
  • ensuring that habitats restored to use were cultivated by farmers (using EU funds under the agri-environmental programme) or subject to subsequent nature management actions;
  • educating residents of the area, students and farmers.
