Ungulates (deer and wild boar). Not specific projects but the management plans of some national parks (designated Natura 2000 sites) in southern Sweden allow for conditional hunting of deer and wild boar to allow the reestablishment of broad leave tree plans. (Deer hunted because they browse trees, wild boar because they destroy fencing around treee seedlings, thus allowing deer access to them). There are also cases of conditional hunting of wild boar in a small national park in order to decrease rooting damagene to sensitive flora and to land surrounding the park. Regular hunting is not allowed within these parks, so the hunting is carried out as conditional hunting.
