Title of the project

Grey partridge and European hare management plan


The Fédération des Chasseurs de Seine-Maritime developed a system of management plans to maintain wild populations of grey partridges and brown hares sustainably and to ensure hunting will not jeopardize maintaining of grey partridge and brown hare populations. These management plans are integrated into the local hunting management plans. There is ongoing population monitoring to see the effects of developed management plans.
