Bests of LIFE projects

Apparently, not only Sakers, but also the Commission found the previous Saker conservation project ('Conservation of Falco cherrug in the Carpathian Basin' - LIFE06 NAT/HU/000096) one of the best LIFE projects that was closed and evaluated in 2011. Now, the project is among the 13 best projects, however the competition is far being over yet. Those projects will be further evaluated and four 'Best of the best projects' will be selected. The results will be announced at an award ceremony in May in Brussels during the Green Week.

The best 13 projects are:
