Irrational use of open environments by hunters
The creation of corridors within forested regions provides benefits for hunting which can mean that the land is used unfavourably as far as biodiversity is concerned: installing artificial feeding sites, developing practices that do not respect the management of intensive grazing areas, game reserves, anarchic creation of lines of fire, etc. These present significant potential risks for local biodiversity.
The project will allow potentially suitable sites for hunting to be identified and will also enable communication with hunting managers so that they apply positive management techniques, in particular the practice of late mowing, installing extensive grazing areas, putting in place edges that provide woody feeding material.
Some of the actions that will be developed by this LIFE project will also be favourable to large fauna, for example, orchards, ponds, meadows, etc.
