This work is voluntary.
Only few travel and food expenses were covered by the LIFE06 NAT/P/000194 “Tree Nesting Bonelli’s Eagle”.

It's really difficult to know the "APPROXIMATE MINIMAL YEARLY COST OF CURRENT EFFORTS (in Euros)" and the number given may not be correct.

Some of the practical information collected (breeding population dimension, threats, habitat quality, etc.) was used to assess the Western population conservation status for the National Action Plan:
CEAI. 2011a. Plano de acção para a conservação da população arborícola de águia de
Bonelli (Aquila fasciata) de Portugal – Linhas Estratégicas. Projecto LIFE
