According to the IUCN (World Conservation Union), of the 9,998 known species of birds, 137 is completely extinct or disappeared in nature (there are only individuals in captivity), 192 species are critically endangered, 362 species are threatened and 669 species falls into the category risk. Croatia has recorded 375 species of birds, of which 231 species in our country regularly nest. Unfortunately, due to human activity, a large number of bird species in Croatia is endangered, so that even 180 bird species (almost 60%) is in a of threat categories in the Red Book of endangered species of Croatian birds. The main threat to our bird life: the disappearance of wetland habitat (as a result of drying out of large wetlands) , vanishing wetlands, forest management and water regime changes, to widespread hunting and poaching, the modern approach to agricultural production with the disappearance of traditional agriculture and animal husbandry, collection of birds' eggs and Taking the young birds from the nest, more frequent fragmentation of habitats. Bird conservation needs: to protect habitat on which the birds nest, feed, rest during migration or used to be inhabited or winter holidays, to manage the habitat in a sustainable manner that does not harm the birds, enable the adoption and implementation of laws relating to the protection of birds, implement raising public awareness through the media , start restoring abandoned and destroyed habitats that may be suitable for the birds spend the reintroduction and repopulation of extinct or endangered species reduced the number, allow an increase in the number of endangered species of birds direct measures to protect the population through the control of invasive species that could adversely affect the birds, and artificial breeding of endangered.
