In the latest issue of Våra Rovdjur (nr 4/2016), you can read my article about border fencing and how it affects wildlife, and large carnivores in particular. The article is based on interviews with Mae Isaksson, who lives near the border fence in Croatia, and John Linnell at NINA in Norway.
Also, in the previous issue (nr 3/2016), there is an article about the Persian leopard, which is being reintroduced to Europe. This article is based on interviews with José Ferreira at Lisbon Zoo and Ewa Wikberg at Nordens Ark.
Border fencing is a big deal in the United States, since our border with Mexico is becoming increasingly militarized. This is bad news for wildlife (such as jaguars), because it prevents them from being able to move freely throughout the landscape.
It’s great to hear about the Persian leopard reintroductions!
