The aim of the project is to start the restoration of natural mountainous forests in Beskydy Mountains involving the local community. The forest cover in Beskydy Mountains has changed dramatically during the last 200 years; these changes induce environmental problems and damages (windbreaks, clear-cut area, floods).
The emphasis will be put to the restoration of natural tree composition and the return of large predators - wolf (Canis lupus), lynx (Lynx lynx) and bear (Ursus arctos) - to the Beskydy Mountains.
The project will consist of two main parts:
2) field survey.
We also plan to continue working with local communities in this field after the end of the project.
