Serbian IBA inventory launched

The first detailed inventory of Important Bird Areas (IBAs) in Serbia was launched on 21 September 2009. This comprehensive and beautifully illustrated book was published by the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning, the Provincial Secretariat for Environmental Protection and Sustainable Development, and the Institute for Protection of Nature of Serbia, with significant contributions from the League for Ornithological Action of Serbia and the Bird Protection and Study Society of Vojvodina. It describes 42 IBAs, covering 14% of the country’s area, where priority action is needed to conserve biodiversity and to ensure long-term management and monitoring.
