Protection of biodiversity in forest areas, including the Natura 2000 network - Promotion of best practices



We would like to invite you to participate in a conference on 10th European Dry Grassland Meeting that will be held at Zamość (Poland) on May 24-31, 2013

The full pdf of the conference can be downloaded.


Project is co-financed by the European Union as part of the LIFE+ Nature program  and the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management in Warsaw and implemented by the partnership of three organizations: Polish Birds, Eagle Protection Committee and Biebrza National Park.


Trap cameras used during wolf monitoring in Western Poland captured this summer wolf pups walking on a forest road. Such video footages from the wild are quite rare.


The Peregine Falcon is the most widely distributed species of birds of prey, with breeding population on every continent, also in Poland. The number of Peregines has increased in many areas and recent population levels in Poland are already above the pre-crash figures.



The general goal of the project is promotion of the best practices, related to protection of biodiversity in forests, especially in the Nature 2000 areas. Information about best practices in biodiversity protection, passed by means of the project, is addressed mainly to professional groups, which can be the most effective in further popularization of identified, sometimes experimental, methods.



Project “Biodiversity protection in forest area,
including Nature 2000 areas – promotion of best practice” (Best for Biodiversity),
co-financed with the means of the European Union under the Financial Instrument LIFE+ and the National Fund of Environmental Protection and Water Management and State Forest National Forest Holding”
