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 ? »


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.

When will the pollen app arrive?

The Ministry of Health had announced that a free app would be offered at the beginning of 2020 that would provide citizens with information about pollen concentrations in the air.

After more than three years, this app still does not exist. DP MP Carole Hartmann therefore asked the Minister of Health where the work on this app is at and who has been entrusted with its development?

Is neurosurgical care deteriorating for patients in Luxembourg?

Recently, the nomenclature for neurosurgical procedures was changed so that intracranial procedures are only reimbursed in the CHL, and no longer in the HRS. The DP MPs Gilles Baum and Gusty Graas asked the minister responsible, among other things, whether this change would not lead to a deterioration in the care of patients and whether the minister was not prepared to have this change re-examined.
