Further support for the Alpine ecological network

In times of climate change it is particularly important to ensure that the landscape does not present obstacles to the passage of migratory species.

CIPRA, the Alpine network of protected areas, ISCAR and the WWF have been involved in the "Ecological Continuum" project for the establishment of an ecological network covering the entire Alpine region since 2007.
With new financial support from the Swiss MAVA Foundation for Nature the Consortium partners will be able to build on the successful groundwork.
In the coming months the "Ecological Continuum" project will concentrate on devising ways of raising awareness in the UN Biodiversity Year 2010 and on the further development and dissemination of the existing instruments and results already achieved. It will also promote the concept of an Alps-wide skills network. Close cooperation with the Alpine Convention Ecological Network and the ECONNECT Project will also be important. The consortium partners will also collaborate with national initiatives such as the "Trame verte et bleue" in France or the Swiss Ecological Network REN. Around € 270,000 will be available for these activities until the beginning of next year.
