The project’s main objective is to illustrate the complementarity between environmental management and hunting by: – Maximizing the ecological potential of the marsh and adjoining parcels by suitable management for habitats, fauna and flora – Putting hunting activity in a sustainable process; awareness of different audiences to biodiversity of the marsh. Management activities with partnership between the areas’s owner and the hunters.
The hunters led the restoration and maintenance of the marsh: willows pruning, reed beds mowing and ponds restoration. This work can reopen the environment.
Finally, the hunters try to write an efficient management plan and try to find some public grants for more important land settlement.
