2021 monitoring season: the positive trend of nesting in Italy is confirmed

The positive results of the monitoring activities of summer 2020 were confirmed in the 2021 breeding season, even though a slight decline was registered with 60 identified and protected nests, most of which were located in Sicily. The Italian coasts, and in particular those of Sicily and generally of the South, are thus confirmed an important breeding site for Mediterranean species and will require effective safeguard and conservation measures in the near future, even after the end of the Life project.
