In October 2016 the Polish Society for the Protection of Birds published a book "The Birds of the Polish Carpathians - status, threats, conservation". The publication summarises a several-year research conducted within the project called "The Birds of the Carpathians".

From November 2011 until June 2012 OTOP has organized series of workshops for local communities live in Polish Carpathians. The meetings took place in 12 communes, most valuable from the environmental point of view. The participants had the possibility to know the Polish environmental law, the aspects of environmental friendly and profitable business activities and the environmental values of their commune.

Between 2012 and 2014 the Polish Society for the Protection of Birds (OTOP) is running a competition ‘OTOP Volunteers in the Carpathians’ targeted at the volunteers who participate in initiatives concerning collecting data about the birds of the Polish Carpathians and their protection. We encourage participation as the prizes are really attractive.

A new system for collecting data on the distribution of the birds of the Polish Carpathians has just been launched on www.ptakikarpat.pl. It is available to anyone who has registered with the system and the data collected via the application will supplement the knowledge on the distribution of the birds of the Polish Carpathians.

On May 6th 2011 at the premises of Jagielloński University Camp OTOP has organized international conference, which has began the project 'Survey of the key bird species of the Polish Carpathian Mountains and creating the system of their monitoring and protection' (in short: 'Birds of the Carpathians'). The main target of the conference was introducing the project guidelines, initial reconnaissance of needs of local interest groups and getting contact with the most important institutions connected with environmental protection of this region.
