The project to return the golden eagle to the Czech Republic has been underway since 2006, with young eagles removed from the nests of wild parents in the Slovak Republic. When reaching three months of age approximately, the birds are released into the wild along the limits of the Beskydy Mountains. In August 2012, there were a total of 18 young golden eagles in the wild, with efforts to protect their own territory observed and evidenced earlier as regards the first three birds.
In spring 2011, nesting of released female called Cecilka and wild male took place with success and the first-ever chick was reared up in the history of the project. There has also been another failed nesting in David and Filoména, a released pair, who first attempted to do so as early as 2010.
