Additional Bird Survey Study

Two separate bird survey studies were conducted to ascertain our impacts on some bird species who have remained unexplored due to seasonal limitations during the ESIA phase. These species are the yelkouan shearwater (Puffinus yelkouan), two goose breeds (Anser erythropus and Branta ruficollis) and the collared pratincole (Glareola pratincola). The studies were conducted inside a 500 meter Project impact corridor running on both sides of the Project route along the Çanakkale Strait, Saros Bay and a 2 kilometer long buffer zone. According to the results of this 4 month-long survey study, our Project does not have any negative impacts on these bird species. The Additional Bird Survey is shared with you on this page.
