Introduction



The Macaronesian Sparrowhawk is listed in Annex I of the Birds Directive and is classified as a priority subspecies. Despite having a conservation status of Least Concern in the Red Book of Vertebrates of Portugal (2005) and the IUCN (2001), the lack of current information about its distribution and population trend in the archipelagos of Madeira and Canary does not allow measuring the conservation status of both populations.

The fires occurring in some areas of the SPA Laurel in recent years, coupled with habitat loss caused by the expanding distribution of invasive plants, increase problems related to the conservation of this species, therefore urgent measures to assist the conservation of the Macaronesian Sparrowhawk are crucial through the recovery of the Laurel forest of Madeira.

The recovery of the Laurel habitat will benefit the Macaronesian Sparrowhawk population but also numerous other species of birds, invertebrates and plants, listed in Annex I of the EC Birds Directive 74/409/EEC and Annex II of the EC Habitats Directive 92/43 / EEC.
