Norway grants will help save habitats and endangered species outside protected areas
Up to 200 000 EUR for the conservation of endangered natural habitats and red-listed plant or animal species can be obtained for those interested in the new subsidy Call from the Norway Grants. In the "Rondane” Call, the State Environmental Fund of the Czech Republic offers a total of EUR 3 million for small rescue projects in localities outside specially protected areas. The submission of applications will start on September 14, 2020.
Funds from the Norway Grants can be used to protect endangered natural habitats, for example to restore wetlands and increase water retention in the landscape, to plant native tree species or to protect against invasive plant species. The second area of support is the protection of endangered plant and animal species listed on the so-called red lists. This protection will be provided by the protection of their natural habitats. It will be possible to obtain a contribution for the creation of the nesting sites for endangered species, for the care of old orchards, important old trees or stone drifts, as well as for modifications of woody plants, restoration of open sands or, for example, for the removal of animal migration barriers.
