Updates on data protection and special access

Dear ornitho.ch users
Over the last few weeks, we have been discussing several updates concerning the protection of sightings and the access to data of sensitive species.

Automatically protected species

The list of automatically protected species has been shortened and the sightings of some species are not automatically protected any more. This review is valid from now on. We have now set criteria defining which species can be subject to automatic data protection. Whoever wants to initiate a protection to other species can submit an application which must be approved by at least three members of the national steering group of ornitho.ch.

We explicitly draw your attention to the fact that besides this, the elements formulated under the terms of use still apply. Of course, everybody has the right to protect any or all of their sightings individually. In 2020, about 9% of all sightings were submitted as protected. As this rate is rising over the years, we encourage our users not to exaggerate while using this protection function. Ornitho.ch lives from the sharing of our observations and we ask you to support this positive basic idea. On the other hand, we should not conceal the fact that we often receive information about people who unfortunately behave inconsiderately towards sensitive species, disregard nature conservation rules and the rights of landowners. In such cases, we may be forced to immediately set up automatic protection for additional species.

Special access to protected sightings

In a second step, we contacted the persons who have special access to protected sightings (e.g., the bearded vulture specialists for sightings of bearded vultures in breeding areas). In the future, such accesses must be re-evaluated every 2 years and approved by at least three members of the national steering group. For this purpose please use this following application form. In principle, only those who actively submit sightings on ornitho.ch are entitled to get such a special access. Our overview here shows (at the bottom) at any time transparently who has a special access for which species.

We hope that with the consistent implementation of these rules, ornitho.ch will continue to enjoy an excellent reputation for credibility and respectful handling of data of sensitive species. If you have any questions in this context, please do not hesitate to contact us at support@ornitho.ch.

Your ornitho.ch team
