"The Wall": Less barriers, more life!

Thursday, 21 October 2010

Stop – no way through! A giant wall blocks the way of pedestrians in Zurich/CH, Vienna/A, Munich/D, Ljubljana/SI, Milan/I and Lyon/F. For animals, it’s the same every day: streets and settlements increasingly fragment their migration routes.

Against the background of the 10th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biodiversity, being held in Nagoya, Japan in the second half of October, the ‘Ecological Continuum Initiative’ demonstrated with ‘The Wall’ on 20 October how important interlinked habitats are for the survival of many plant and animal species.
