Time to go off to the east coast again to do a wildlife census for a couple of weeks. We will be looking mostly for moose, hare, capercaillie and roe deer.
On Saturday the 25 of February Naturskyddsföreningen Värmland hosted the carnivore symposium Rovdjurssymposium – Framtiden. Around 100 people attended the symposium which offered several interesting talks as well as a dialogue between four organizations with sometimes conflicting interests in carnivore politics.
