Action C5: Planting and grafting of fruit bearing trees.


At least 150 fruit bearing trees will be planted and other 100 will be grafted in order to create feeding sites for fruit bats (Rousettus aegyptiacus). According to local bat experts, Rousettus aegyptiacus have experienced a sharp decline during the last 5 years. The planting proposed in this project is close to one of the largest colonies of the species in Cyprus. Therefore, the population increase due to the proposed planting is estimated approximately 20%.
