news 07-10-2011 ...back

In total, 12 presentations featuring various issues of wild population monitoring and sustainable hunting were given. As an introduction to the seminar, Alexander Griffin (member of the Federation of Associations for Hunting and Conservation of the EU) presented the new European rules for sustainable hunting, comprised in the “European Charter on Hunting and Biodiversity”. Other presentations concerned applied inventory methods for ungulates with strong emphasize on their advantages and disadvantages, moose management and red deer genetics. To provide other perspective, prof. Graham Kerley presented hunting and the management of ungulate populations in Africa. The Seminar ended with a summary given by Marek Masłowski (Director of the Regional Directorate of State Forests in Białystok) and Bogumiła Jędrzejewska (Leader of the Research Group “Ecology of Natural Ecosystems”, Mammal Research Institute Polish Academy of Sciences). They formulated recommendations for wildlife monitoring and sustainable hunting. They highlighted the need for development of better inventory methods for ungulates and more efficient use of scientific research in elaborating the optimal model of sustainable hunting.
The evaluation questionnaires completed by seminar participants confirmed the usefulness of such meetings. 87% of respondents found the seminar meeting their expectations.
We would like to thank all the speakers and invited guests for coming and their active participation in the meeting.
