Establish a system, with support from partner EuroNatür, to monitor hunting in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Hutovo Blato Nature Park, thus helping to stabilizing bird populations. Build strong relationships with local hunting associations to prevent poaching and promote the nature park as a birdwatching site for local children (with educational activities) and domestic and foreign tourists. Based on the experience from Hutovo Blato, the monitoring system will be extended to Mostarsko Blato, a very important stop-over site for migrating birds in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Strategic Direction: 3 Improve the conservation and protection status of 44 priority key biodiversity areas
