Integrative sustainable widlife management in alpine ecosystems - Project part Recreation (Bios - Erholung)

The Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG), Sensengasse 1 , 1090 Wien, Austria
Sustainable use of natural resources is one of the central goals of national and international environmental and resource politics. One part of it is the sustainable use of free-ranging ungulates and their habitats. These are challenged by a complex interaction of forestry and agriculture, hunting as well as recreation. To deny these interplay is assumably one reason for the enormous economic damage through wildlife browsing (over 218 million Euro annually in Austria's forestry). This project aims at evaluating the existing principles, criteria and indicators of sustainable wildlife management for alpine ecosystems and to develop this system for future use of chamois, ibex and red deer.
