It has suffered a major decline in many countries, it is considered to be a species in decline throughout its whole range. The Romanian population is estimated at 2,000 pairs, that represents 22,2% of the EU population. The hosting organization is implementing from January 2010 a big scaled project aimed to Lesser Spotted Eagle. The main objective of the project is to ensure conditions to achieve and maintain favorable conservation status of Romanian population. This will be reached through stabilizing the population numbers and ensuring conditions to maintain the favorable conservation status on the long term in Romania.
