Projects implemented with the support of Slovenské elektrárne, an Enel Group Company

Cooperation between Tatra National Park Management and Slovenské elektrárne, a.s. began in 2007 with a project focused on the protection of two of the most important and rarest animal species found in the park itself, the Tatra chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra tatrica) and the alpine marmot (Marmota marmota latirostris).

The project focused on habitat monitoring in connection with efforts to save the alpine marmot and the Tatra chamois and the reintroduction of the alpine marmot from the Western Tatras to the Belianske Tatras from 2008 to 2010.

Another project focused on mapping the presence and documenting the nesting grounds of the rare peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus) began in 2009. One falcon nest in the area of the Belianske Tatras was even monitored with a camera. Streaming video from the camera is accessible to the public on-line (www.spravatanap.sk “live camera”).

Another project in 2010 focused on the monitoring, protection and improvement of the population dynamics of the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) and the lesser spotted eagle (Aquila pomarina). In this project as well, one golden eagle nest was monitored using a camera and live stream video was made available on-line. The camera monitored the nest during the entire fledging process and site visitors had the opportunity to watch the entire development and growth of an immature eagle fledgling. Tatra National Park Management is currently working on a monitoring project to determine the lynx (Lynx lynx) and wolf (Canis lupus) populations in the park. Monitoring primarily involves physical tracking and trail cameras are installed on wolf and lynx trails and near the carcasses of prey to which these predators return. The Tatra National Park Management camera system was used to monitor alpine marmot in the autumn of 2010 in the area of the Western Tatras and was then redeployed to monitor the alpine marmot and Tatra chamois in Skalntá dolina valley in the spring of 2011. Both locations featured live streaming of the video feeds. The camera system was moved in the winter months of 2011 and 2012 to the bird feeding station maintained by park management in Liptovský Mikuláš. The spring months provided streaming video from a white swan (Ciconia circonia) nest. The camera system provides the general public with the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the interesting activities of our protected wildlife species from the comforts of their own homes. Cooperation between Tatra National Park Management and Slovenské elektrárne, a.s. also involved park visitors in the form of information panels about the joint projects and about support and the stabilisation of biodiversity in the Tatra National Park that were located throughout the Tatra valleys.
