Large carnivore populations are increasing in numbers and spreading to new areas in Europe, thanks to the conservation measures that have been taken. This has aroused considerable interest in large carnivores but also given rise to some concern and public debate.
Already half of the measures defined in the 2015 Wolf Management Plan have already been realized. The purpose of the Wolf Management Plan and its projects is to find functional solutions for the management of the wolf populations and to improve the coexistence between humans and wolves.
May 9–10 marks the celebration of the World Migratory Bird Day. Because of this, The Finnish Wildlife Agency wishes to remind people of the importance of internationally coordinated hunting and up-to-date catch statistics. The theme of the World Migratory Bird Day is: taking waterfowl into consideration in the development of energy technology.
The Finnish Wildlife Agency’s headquarters has moved to new premises. It is now located in the Tapanila neighbourhood of Helsinki. At the same address you will also find the Registry, Licence Administration, the Metsästäjä magazine’s editorial office and the Uusimaa Regional Office.
Next week site managers, landowners and wildlife and hunting organisations from across Europe will come together to share best practice on how sustainable hunting practices can be integrated into nature conservation planning.
