The French Isère Pilot Region is very active in the field of ecological connectivity. Besides ECONNECT, since February 2009 the region is engaged in another EU Project named "Paths of life". This project will last six years and has a budget of nine million Euro.
In the framework of this project several meetings were organized on the field with all concerned stakeholders (mayors, farmers, hunters, naturalists,…) to share the elaborated cartography of the vegetal structures and the knowledge of the territory.
A fish pass is currently under construction. It will enhance the transmissibility at the river Breda, especially for trout. All fish have been temporarily removed from the river bed to protect them from dying during the working process. Furthermore, other construction works are planned, like an underpath or the installation of thermal detectors systems for animals.
Detailed maps showing the planned project activities and further information on the project are available on the website: www.pathsoflife.eu (en, fr)
