Together we help protect the ground squirrel


Our research projects and management activities are financed through grants.

The aim of this project is to contribute to the rescue of sousliks across the Czech Republic and Slovakia. It will include a multitude of activities including: monitoring species in known areas, identifying new areas for potential colonies, improving the environment for the sousliks, providing education to local landowners,villages and target visitors to souslik regions to promote their protection and conservation.
Monitoring the populations of sousliks in South Moravia
This project, based in South Moravia, is focused on the implementation of four key measures for the European souslik: monitoring beyond the scope of regular annual monitoring, demographic study of a selected population, analysis of population viability and public awareness.
This project aims to protect sousliks and educate the general public about their presence in vineyards using the Sysli na Vinici trademark.
