The Management Board of Schinias Marathon National Park is carrying out a Bird Monitoring Program since April 2014. Counts include all bird species present in the National Park and they take place on point counts and line transects in regular time intervals. Data collected will be used to compile the complete species list of the area and to determine species presence during the different seasons and also to estimate bird populations and trends.
In 2014 the Management Board of Schinias Marathon National Park launched an international open invitation to tender for the procurement of services for monitoring of bird species, reptile species, habitats types and flora species. The results will also be used to report about the progress made on the implementation of the E.U. Birds and Habitats Directives. The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund, the Greek state and the European Union.
