Concrete Conservation Actions
Action C1: Construction of ponds and weirs.
Four artificial small ponds (two in Alykos river area and two in Skoulli area) and one weir (Alykos river area) will be created between and/ or along rivers or wetland habitats. The aim of this action is to create new appropriate habitats (for feeding, reproduction, and dispersal movements) primarily for Natrix natrix cypriaca and Mauremys rivulata and to a lesser extend Coluber cypriensis (and for other related species e.g. amphibians and insects). This action also includes the creation of a few vegetation openings using vegetation pruning and clearings to facilitate bat movements during feeding and watering.
