Nature-conservationist monitoring

The ornithological research at the Sečovlje salt-pans boasts more than a century long tradition. At the end of the 19th century, the area was reaserched by Bernardo Schiavuzzi, who eventually bestowed us with the first data on the local bird fauna.

After him, nothing happened for a number of years, until the salt-pans were rediscovered, from the ornithological point of view, by Božidar Ponebšek (1962). The most intensive research into the ornithofauna of the pans, however, began only after 1975. At that time, the salt-pan area was surveyed and ornithologically evaluated by Gregori (1976), Geister and Šere (1977), and Šmuc (1980). 
In the 1980s and 1990s, the ornithological research carried out at the Sečovlje salt-pans was closely associated with members of the Ornithological Association IXOBRYCHUS. New breeders for Slovenia were discovered at the Sečovlje salt-pans. The ornithological endeavours were soon jhoined by nature-conservations aspirations, eventually gathered in the articles of nature-conservationist contents. Between 1983 and 2003, a regular monitoring was being implemented in the area of the pans. The data for the 1983-1997 were published in the journal Falco, entitled »Ecological evaluation and protection of the Sečovlje salt-pans' important bird species« (Makovec, Škornik, Lipej, 1998). In 1995, the so-called »zero bird inventory« had also been made. Within the framework of the activities carried out by the Ornithological Association Ixobrychus, the monitoring was resumed in the ensuing years until 2003.
In 2003, the monitoring of birds and other animal species as well as surveys of the birds' and halophilous plants' habitats were assumed by the Sečovlje Salina Nature Park's personnel.
