Less barriers, more nature!

Sep 30, 2010 / CIPRA Internationale Alpenschutzkommission
Every day we build new obstacles on the migrating routes for animals and we prevent plants to spread freely. In most of the cases we are not even aware of this problem. How would it feel and look like, if our living spaces would suddenly get fragmented by obstacles we cannot easily overcome?

Join us on the 20th of October in one of six major cities! We will set up obstacles in busy pedestrian areas of Zurich/CH, Milan/I, Munich/D, Ljubljana/SI, Lyon/F and Vienna/A. The Ecological Continuum Initiative prepares this big international event to raise the awareness on the interruption of ecological corridors towards a wide public. Apart from setting up the obstacles, a number of accompanying activities will take place. More information: [email protected]
