„Grazing is amazing“

The project is implemented in Slovakia and Czech Republic. Project LIFE SUB-PANNONIC focuses on restoration of rare dry grassland ecosystems which are currently threatened by succession and invasive plant species due to the abandonement of traditional grazing and management of these localitites. The restoration of the rare habitats is done with the help of four-legged mowers – sustainable management through grazing animals by local farmars. On the 21 localities across Slovakia, from the Small Carpathians all to way to Zemplín on the east and on 7 localities in Moravia the project improves the status of rare habitats and the protection status of population of floral species of European Importance: Himantoglossum caprinum, Onosma tornensis and Artemisia pancicii.

Main objective

The main objective of the project is to improve the conservation status of 3 priority habitats (*6240,*6210 and *6250) and 3 species of Community importance: *Onosma tornensis, *Artemisia pancicii and Himantoglossum caprinum in the norhern edge of the Pannonian bioregion and on its border with Carpathian and Continental bioregions.

Specific Targets

  • For *Onosma tornensis, it will cover all sites of its occurence in Slovakia within the NATURA 2000 network, representing cca 50% of the total SK/HU population of this endemic species.
  • For endemic species *Artemisia pancicii, 1 of cca 10 remaining sites worldwide will be covered.
  • Himantoglossum caprinum – the species will be conserved on northernmost edge of its overall distribution range. The respective populations are very endangered presently, with only a few indivduals left. The covered sites hold more than 80% of the overall SR population of this rare species.
  • *6240 – the project will cover and restore the core of habitats occurence in Slovakia and one of the most important sites in CR.
  • *6250 – some of the most important sites with this habitat type in Czech Republic will be restored.
