Concrete Conservation Actions


Action C8: Conservation genetics & ex situ conservation.


The action aims to the assessment of the genetic diversity and structure of the population of the selected reptile species and the invertebrate Propomacrus cypriacus. At the same time, blood and tissue samples will be collected from individuals of the already known local populations, which will contribute to the assessment of species’ genetic diversity. A captive breeding program will also be applied, aiming to enhance the small isolated populations of the targeted reptile species or create new populations, in order to avoid a possible extinction of the species’ population, locally.
