The LIFE project Waldrappteam (LIFE12 BIO/AT/000143) has welcomed the recent condemnation of a hunter for the killing of one of the most endangered bird species worldwide, the northern bald ibis (Geronticus eremita). In October 2012, two the northern bald ibises, named Goja and Jedi, were shot by an Italian bird hunter just 80 km from their wintering site in the province of Livorno (Italy). The hunter was condemned but appealed. Now the Supreme Court has ruled that the condemnation should be upheld, a decision that is setting a unique and significant precedent in the fight against illegal bird hunting in Italy.
