Participation in an international conference on ecology and transport

Experts from Minuartia attended the International Conference on Ecology and Transportation that is organised every two years by INFRA ECO NETWORK EUROPE, and was held in Lyon, France in 2016. Ferran Navàs, Carme Rosell and Marina Torrellas gave various papers and presented a poster on different projects related to wildlife passages, factors that affect the risk of collisions with wild boar and roe deer on roads, and actions for cormorant management. The papers were drawn up in collaboration with a dozen organisations in Catalonia and European countries. The abstracts of the papers can be consulted in the book of abstracts . In addition, the declaration on Ecological design and maintenance for habitats related to transport infrastructures, which was approved at the conference, can be consulted
