SAP: Sicilian Rock Partridge

Sicilian Rock PartridgeEvery year in Sicily large areas of dry grasslands and scattered scrubs are lost by fires. Burnt areas are no longer suitable for the species at least for that year. In certain circumstances the fire on grassland may not represent a major problem in the long term, but if this event takes place often it may result in habitat loss. Furthermore, fire is likely to kill all chicks under the age of 2-4 weeks.
