Conservation measures which are too ineffective

Survival of the Corncrake depends directly on management measures implemented on all of its breeding sites.

Conservation measures in the national restoration plan, which are particularly based on agri-environmental measures, envisage the retention of alluvial grasslands and their relevant management. Specifications in the contracts relating to the retention and management of hay meadows include dedicated measures to protect the Corncrake, in areas where the species occurs.
