Participation in international experience exchange seminar
 
In 31th of July till 5th of August (2016)  a Workshop on active management of forest protected areas was held in Mikulov, Czech, attended also by representative of NAT-PROGRAMME.
 
There is an increasing awareness that simply setting aside forests for free development risks missing out on the conservation of associated biodiversity. Due to past land use and fragmented landscapes, natural disturbances and process cannot fully operate within single small set-asides. To support natural values, measures to actively manage forests for biodiversity conservation are being developed. This meeting collected researcher and practitioners working in this field for exchanging knowledge and experience through Europe.
 
The workshop consisted of discussion parts (23 presentations) and field trips. NAT-PROGRAMME expert Sandra Ikauniecie together with prof. Guntis Brūmelis, who worked with monitoring in forest management sites, told about project guidelines, experience with experimental forest habitats management and results.
 
For field trips, Pannonia in the Czech and Slovak Republic as well as Austria was visited. Some of the localities were in Natura 2000, some of them were outside of protected areas. There were some broad-leaf forests with active management procedures, pollard stands and coppice standarts.
