Campaign to promote participation and collection of complete lists in Latvia

LatvianOrnithology Society (LOS), developed in the framework of LIFE EBP Action A10, a local communication campaign to promote participation and better data collection.

Observers were particularly encouraged to collect complete lists, explaining the relevance of this kind of data and hightlighting that, thanks to the improvements in the Davas dati app, now submitting complete lists was easier than ever.
