Nature Conservation Projects
The riches of nature, and the services they provide, depend on those who manage land, water and the creatures that live there. Some guidance for these important managers, and the governments that influence them, can be found in European Charters here (see the right column).
Best practice ideas from across Europe have been gathered, as a result of two European Commission projects, at the Naturalliance site (now in 23 languages). Further multilingual projects sites are being started to help restore the riches of nature across Europe and for global-with-local efforts worldwide.
The first of these project sites is about Grey Partridges and the wildflower-loaded habitats needed by them, pollinators and many other species. Perdixnet is now live, after launch across Europe on 11 May 2017. Its 18 languages are promoting wildlife-friendly farming from the North Sea to the Adriatic, through national sites and local projects.
Work on deer and wild boar, river quality, 'nature based solutions' and 'ecosystem services' is in planning too.
