Aiming at integrating various approaches applied by the individual regional branches in assessing measures influencing the Corncrake (Crex crex) populations, the Nature Conservation Agency of the Czech Republic (NCA CR) developed a methodology on that issue.
The voluntary project NOBANIS (North European and Baltic Network on Invasive Alien Species) is one of the European databases on invasive alien species (IAS).

Habitat fragmentation and consequent loss of the landscape connectivity by transport infrastructure, particularly by highways, threaten many wild animal species. Transport infrastructure permeability for fauna can be provided by either underpass tunnels under highways, or by special wildlife overpasses (ecoductes) above highways.
