First chicks in 2018

With the arrival of spring,even the first good news from GTR’s antipoaching camps are arriving.. The first Bonelli’s eagles were born in Sicily. The surveillance camp 1, started on March 10th, but trail-cameras were already placed on March 4th and 5th. The volunteers intervened promptly when a well known figure was seen prying around the nesting site. At camp 2 a first birth was ascertained and hatching is soon expected in another risky site where several camera rails have been placed. Positive news also in camp 3 where, besides the birth of a chick, the monitoring of the territory allowed volunteers to spot the same poacher seen also at camp 1, poking around.
