Project Description

The Life programme is a financial instrument supporting environmental projects and natural conservation in European countries and some times in their neighbourhood for the implementation of the Habitats and Bird Directives (Directives 92/43/EC and 2009/147/EC of European Parliament and Council). Life+ Nature and Biodiversity support  projects and co-finance actions aiming at:

  1. Best Practices and/or demonstrative projects contributing to implementation of objectives regarding Habitats and Birds Directives;
  2. Demonstrative/innovative Projects of EU Strategy 2020 implementation about biodiversity;

LIFE Project MED-WOLF-   Best practice actions for wolf conservation in  Mediterranean-type areas (LIFE11 NAT/IT/069) – takes place in Italy, in the territory of Grosseto province and in Portugal, in the Guarda and Castelo Branco districts. The project’s goal is to decrease the conflict between the wolf’s presence and human activities in rural areas where cultural tradition of coexistence with predators is lost.  MED-Wolf joins Italian and Portuguese agricultural and environmental associations, state institutions and research centres, in a unique collaboration.
