Off to the east coast

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.

A successful Rovdjurssymposium – Framtiden

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.

In the picture Camilla Wikenros from Grimsö forskningsstation holds a talk about how wolves affect the ecosystem.

 

 

Sveriges Radio, Värmlands folkblad and Nya Wermlands-Tidningen covered the symposium and you can read more in the links below.
