The Eurasian hoopoe protection project continued throughout the year 2018. The aim of this project is to support nesting opportunities and maintain food habitats that are suitable to the Eurasian hoopoe. The protection of such sites will also help protect other species belonging to special fauna and flora.
As part of this project, a total of 2 hectares of degraded veldt grasslands were cut in select locations and 0.6 hectares of overgrown areas were carved. These
management interventions not only contributed to the improvement of the habitat status within the localities but are also likely to extend the local diversity of the flora and fauna. In 2018, Eurasian hoopoe nesting occurred for a second time, and the female bred five baby birds.
