"The Wall": Less barriers, more life!

Dec 15, 2010
Stop - no way through! On 20th of October 2010 a giant wall blocked the way of pedestrians in Zurich/CH, Vienna/A, Munich/D, Ljubljana/SI, Milan/I and Lyon/F. For animals, it's the same every day: streets and settlements increasingly fragment their migration routes.
Against the background of the 10th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biodiversity, held in Nagoya, Japan in the second half of October, the 'Ecological Continuum Initiative' demonstrated with 'The Wall' how important interlinked habitats are for the survival of many plant and animal species.
The action the Wall was a great success and has caused a broad echo in the media. The six structures (walls) are available for free further use by all interested actors (contact: [email protected]).
Photos of the event in all the six Alpine cities as well as interviews with experts, good practice examples from all countries and material for the media is available at:
