The four nature parks Ammergauer Alpen, Nagelfluhkette, Karwendel and Tiroler Lech presented on 05 October 2021 in Scharnitz the completed Interreg small-scale project "Species protection without borders" which is to serve as a common nature conservation basis for a more intensive cross-border cooperation in the future.
Within the framework of this project, existing information and work from the four nature parks was compiled and technically elaborated by the environmental office coopNATURA in connection with various workshops. This resulted in the following nature conservation work.
The nature parks on the Bavarian as well as on the Tyrolean side have been committed to the protection of species and biotopes for years and have already implemented many measures. The Interreg project enables a cross-border cooperation in order to have a technically solid basis for joint species and biotope protection measures in the future. The exchange of existing knowledge, but also results and experiences from previous projects will be included.
The aim of the cross-border project is to preserve biodiversity in the Northern Alps. Habitats and species for which all nature parks share a common responsibility are highlighted. Measures, plans and activities of the nature parks will be communicated via the
networking with each other, which ultimately focuses on cross-border added value.
This small-scale project serves to intensify the cooperation between the nature parks, which in turn forms a basis for future joint Interreg projects.
