One of the main goals of the LIFE-ZEAURBAN Project is to ensure the feeding areas on which urban populations of lesser kestrel depend. Thanks to the information obtained from the data logger transmitters, the preferences for habitat use are being analyzed. The objective is to characterize the most favorable agricultural and livestock management model for the species, coming up with a pilot experience. Thus, the quality of grasslands, crops, and boundaries is being improved to increase the abundance and availability of prey.
One of the main factors when establishing the protection criteria for a species such as the lesser kestrel is to know, as accurately as possible, where their main feeding areas are and what environmental characteristics those areas possess.
