Status : Not started.
Following the implementation and the improvement of the potential habitats for breeding of the amphibian species (Action C1), the re – entering of specimens of Bombina variegata and Salamandrina terdigitata shall be carried out in those areas which will be considered as eligible for this purpose, as selected in the preparatory action A1.
