The project will be implemented by the Andros Municipality, in collaboration with the Hellenic Ornithological Society (Birdlife in Greece) and the nature consulting firm NCC.Ltd. The project is the product of a 3 years consultation for the conservation of the site. In the previous 2 years the proposal was found non eligible for Life funding due to the fact that the site had not yet been declared as an SPA. This obstacle was raised in the beginning of 2010 with the formal delineation of the Andros SPA site. There is a wide local support of the project and high aspirations for the implementation of the foreseen species and habitat conservation actions.
The project partnership involves significant experience and expertise in the implementation of bird conservation projects, Life projects in particular. This experience will be used in a series of conservation actions implemented by the project partnership.
