A Rocha Czech

Based at their environmental centre, Krupárna, the A Rocha team in NE Bohemia works with local schools to run children’s environmental clubs and summer camps. They organize bird ringing demonstrations and run fungi exhibitions, involving and training young naturalists.

In partnership with the Czech Ornithological Society they carry out long-term monitoring of birds such as Corn Crake Crex crex and Red-backed Shrike Lanius collurio in Orlické Záhoří, a 904 hectare area of grasslands and marshes in eastern Bohemia. The floodplain meadows and wetlands were badly affected by a drainage scheme in the 1970s and continue to face threats from overgrazing and the growing tourist industry, so the monitoring is aimed at ensuring that restoration measures produce the desired results.
