Stakeholders and General Public involved in the project

Several communication, awareness and training actions will allow a better understanding of the European mink by the local stakeholders. It is an essential role to ensure success for the programme.

To achieve this objective:

  • Creation of a website about the LIFE VISON programme
  • Awareness campaigns for the local stakeholders (river technicians, trappers, hunters, local population, schools, in sport and leisure activities…)
  • Involvement of the decision-makers to integrate the European mink conservation in local land use politics
  • Implementation of information panels in strategic locations open to the public
  • Production of documentaries about the project, actions, Charente River catchment and high value species of the LIFE area
  • Creation of thematic information flyers
  • Technical seminars
  • Writing of scientific articles, accessible to the general public.
