We will elaborate site specific action plans for target species (fire-bellied toad, yellow-bellied toad, Italian crested newt) conservation objectives. Areas for habitat management (C.1, C.2) and priority areas for land purchase (B.1) will be defined. We will estimate population status and specific habitat requirements for target species for every site before the concrete actions will be designed and performed. We will conduct a preoperational amphibian monitoring thorough field inventories of breeding sites, data on distribution and abundance, migration routes, analysis of terrestrial habitats etc. Findings of amphibians on Annex IV of Habitat Directive (moor frog, agile frog, European tree frog) and other species will be noted. All this work is necessary since recent knowledge of local target species populations is missing for all project sites.
Additionally, we will monitor amphibian migrations on selected roads which will result in the preoperational study of amphibians for detailed planning for road tunnels and fences on roads (C.4).
The population reinforcement (C.3) will be an important contribution to the amphibian conservation because the reproduction success of a small and isolated population of Triturus carnifex in Slovenia and Bombina bombina in Denmark will be significantly improved.
