Effects on biodiversity and society

Introduction:

Illegal use of poisoned baits is a serious threat to public health and biodiversity, both in Europe and world-wide. This illegal practice represents one of the biggest conservation problems for wildlife, often becoming the main cause of non-natural death.

The “Poison, wildlife and society” congress is organized in the frame of the project LIFE09 NAT/ES/000533 “Innovative actions against illegal poisoning in EU Mediterranean pilot areas”, as one of the main actions of its dissemination programme.
The aim of this international project is to develop, monitor and evaluate different innovative actions oriented to eradicate or reduce the use of illegal poisoned baits, which is one of the principal threatening and extinction factors for a number of species, as the Iberian wolf, the Brown bear, the Iberian lynx, the Imperial eagle or the Bearded vulture.
