At the beginning of 2012, jackal was reported on West Belarus, near Tomasouka (Brestkaya Voblasts’), near the border with Poland (Lubelskie) and Ukraine (Volins’ka Oblast). This site is located near Pulemenske Lake.
Record of C.aureus in West Belarus, Dzedzich 7.01.2012
Belarus has in total a number of 13 Ramsar wetlands. In the recent time Belarus received Ramsar status for four wetlands, the last, Vigonoshchanskoe included on 16/01/2013.
This wetland is part of Brest Region, area where the jackal was recorded in January 2012. Its surface is 54,182 ha; 52°42'N 25°40'E. Profile is National Landscape Reserve; Important Bird Area; Habitat/Species Management Area.
Include a large forest-wetland complex situated at the watershed of river basins of the Black and Baltic seas. This are, a slightly transformed by economic and recreational activities, is of great importance for the conservation of plant and animal species as well as for the protection of the whole natural complex of Belarusian Polesie. There are two large lakes on the territory as well as rivers, canals, floodplains and open marsh areas, including waterlogged forests, fens, transitional and raised bogs. The core of the Site is Lake Vygonoshchanskoe. The site plays a key role in maintaining the hydrological regime in the region and feeding the River Shchara, one of the River Neman's largest tributaries.
In 2011, the Great Gray Owl Strix nebulosa, rare species in Belarus had a strange behavior, it was reported that the offspring’s were missing during spring survey. It is known that mice represent the base food of the Great Gray Owl and that they are very sensitive when the prey is scarce, and the offspring’s may be affected.
The challenge is now to check wetlands near Pulemenske Lake West Belarus, Vitebsk and Smolensk Nature Reserves to check if possible clusters of the golden jackal exists in those habitats.

Nikolai Spassov presented on 16.04.2013 his opinion regarding Jackal Origin in Estonia. Luca Lapini, Ivana Selanec and Ovidiu Banea believe that jackal reached naturally Matsalu National Park Reserve in West Estonia while Giorgos Giannatos believes that species is most probably to be allochtonous.

Asa incearca Crispus sa ajute vanatorii iresponsabili. Prezentam un comentariu scris de noi, in noiembrie 2012 pe site-ul vanatorul.ro. Se stie foarte bine ca instrumentele electronice si chematorile sunt interzise la vanatul sacalului, nici farurile sau vehiculele motorizate nu sunt permise, si nu se pot folosi mai mult de doua gloante. Chiar si asa exista vanatul trebuie sa se organizeze numai daca exista un plan de monitoring si doar in baza unei cote de recolte. Pe site-ul vanatorul se pot identifica ushor cativa vanatori certati cu legea.

Our preliminary data (72 of 95 stomachs (12 empty)
collected from jackals shot all over the country were analyzed) showed that the
golden jackal diet consisted mainly of mammals (occurrence of 87.5%, of which
41,7% was rodents), birds (36,1%), vegetable matter (30,6%, mainly fruits,
seeds, acorns and crop), fish (12,5%), insects (9,7%) reptiles (1,4%) and
crustations (2,8%) (Table 3)(Stoyanov 2012)

NGO Crispus Sibiu impreuna cu Wild Bulgaria NGO Elkhovo lucreaza pentru proiectul JEP SEE "Jackal Ecology Project in SouthEastern Europe" cu obiective clare de evaluare a ecologiei populatiilor de sacal auriu in SE Europei. Proiectul se pregateste pentru programul de finantare al UE, LIFE +.
Proiectul se va desfasura in arii naturale din Romania, Bulgaria, Ungaria, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Grecia si Italia.
Au fost invitati partenerii nostri traditionali cu care am inceput monitorizarea in Romania, SNVA RNP Romsilva, Muzeul Gr Antipa din Bucuresti, Administratia Rezervatiei Biosferei Delta Dunarii dar si parteneri precum Muzeul de Istorie Naturala din Sofia Bulgaria, Facultatea de Biologie din Belgrad Serbia, Institutul de Conservare a Faunei Salbatice din Godollo Ungaria, Universitatea Kaposvar Ungaria, Societatea Dinaricum Slovenia, BIOM NGO Zagreb Croatia, Societatea Biosphere Atena Grecia si Muzeul de Istorie Naturala din Udine Italia.
Between 7th and 14th of february 2011, Green Guard Environmental Control Corp of Youth NGO Crispus SIBIU, will develope a new action of acoustic monitoring for the golden jackal specia in natural areas from Romania. This action is named "Azimut 2011, winter survaillance for the golden jackal in Romania" and it cames after Orizont 2010 when we had installed 30 calling station in a preliminatory study. This actions are part of a larger project "Structure and dynamic of the golden jackal populations in natural areas from Romania" planed for the nexts 4 years. check http://goldenjackalaround.blogspot.com to see the "Orizont 2010" and "Delta Ranger 2010" monitoring actions.
