Algerian Nuthatch

Status and breeding biology of the Algerian Nuthatch in the Guerrouch Forest. This new study showed a significant decline in the population at a section of this forest, and presented new data about the breeding biology of the species.

The species is Endangered and occur at only four sites in northern Algeria including the forest where the current study was undertaken.

The threats to the species are not limited to the Guerrouch Forest (as the study above showed), other sites are apparently more endangered by human activities.

Recently the Algerian authorities authorized the creation of a touristic/recreation project at one of the other breeding sites: the Bouafroun forest, located at Djimla.

A local association launched this petition today (text in English, French and Arabic). Any signature will help to bring the attention of the authorities, which hopefully will lead them to reconsider the projects.

Thanks all for your help.

The issue already reached the concerned authorities. To quote from an article published today in the independent and respected newspaper El Watan under the title: Des écologistes alertent contre les atteintes à l’environnement (Environmentalists warn against environmental damage):

“On March 13, the Minister of the Environment, Fatima-Zohra Zerouati, visiting the wilaya of Constantine, was the recipient of a well-explained request, supported by all the arguments about the risks of these recreational forest projects on the natural environment. A last attempt to save the Bouafroune Forest and the legendary Algerian Nuthatch, and to avoid unnecessary expenses for the Public Treasury”.
