Partridge project – biodiversity maintenance on private agricultural land


In 2007 Nature and Game Management Trust Finland started a national Grey Partridge Population Management project. In selected areas hunters and farmers cooperate in partridge management by utilising appropriate agro-environmental schemes and voluntary effort in game management. The project implements the national Grey Partridge Population Management Plan drafted by the Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. The long term targets of the project are to support the viability of the present wild population and to re-establish the population all over its earlier range.
