Hunter Participation Through Partnerships
The overall goal of this action is to ensure the active engagement of hunters throughout the evolution of the project, especially in activities where they are directly involved. We will educate hunters about lynx ecology, biology, and conservation and promote and value the role of hunters as key partners in the LIFE Lynx project for sustaining long-term lynx recovery. Hunters will be educated and kept closely informed about the project’s progress to maintain their engagement throughout the project and through this to reconfirm the role of hunters as conservation leaders. The meetings and events will be organized in three countries and will run until the end of the project.
