Drone rescue of fawns from combine harvesters

The government announced a pilot project last summer to support the drone rescue of fawns from combine harvesters. DP MPs Max Hahn and Gusty Graas wanted more information on this pilot project.

« An hirer Äntwert op eis parlamentaresch Fro n°2377 vum 11. Juni 2020 hunn d’Madamm an den Här Minister folgendes geschriwwen :

« D’Réikitzrettung mat enger thermescher Kamera an enger Dron aus der Loft ass déi sécherst Method fir Réikitz virun der Méihmaschinn ze retten. Déi nei Technologien kënnen hei sécherlech ee Beitrag fir méi Sécherheet leeschten. Oft ugewannte Methoden, wéi zum Beispill verdreiwe mat Duftstoffer oder Mënscheketten si méi zäitopwänneg an net sou erfollegräich. Et gëtt driwwer nogeduecht ee Pilotprojet ze starten. »

An deem Kader wollte mir der Madamm Ministesch fir Ëmwelt, Klima an nohalteg Entwécklung an dem Här Minister fir Landwirtschaft, Wäibau a ländlech Entwécklung folgend Froe stellen:

– Wäert de genannte Pilotprojet dëse Fréijoer lancéiert ginn ?

– Wann net, wat wieren d’Grënn dofir ? Wéini soll de Projet gestart ginn ?

– Kënnen d’Madamm an den Här Minister weider Detailer zum Projet ginn ? »

Answer

The pilot project will not yet be launched this spring. A specification for this project is however being prepared with “Natur an Ëmwelt asbl.”. The project aims to compare different techniques and methods. These include simple and inexpensive measures such as mowing from the inside out, to the use of drones or detectors on the agricultural machinery. Furthermore, the project should not be limited to fawns, but also other animals as e.g. rabbits or the ground breeders should benefit from it. We also look at our neighboring countries’ experiences in this context. Eventually, a pilot project could be launched in spring 2022.

Has the presence of the stink bug already been confirmed in Luxembourg?

The stink bug is an invasive insect native to Asia that causes many headaches for winegrowers, fruit and vegetable producers. These bugs can indeed cause very serious damage in vines, orchards or vegetable gardens. DP MPs André Bauler and Gusty Graas asked the ministers concerned whether these insects had already spread in Luxembourg and whether damage had already been detected in crops.

What about the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination?

Some countries restrict the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination for entry into their country. For people who were vaccinated at the beginning of the year, the validity of the vaccination will therefore expire soon. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible ministers whether Luxembourg also plans to introduce such a validity limit and what can be done at EU level.
