Abstract:Gamebird hunting is an important socio-economic activity in Europe involving millions of people, euros and hectares. It can provide benefits to biodiversity through, e.g. the maintenance or management of habitats. However, it may also have negative implications for biodiversity through e.g. the illegal control of predators to maximise game numbers. The latter is a key conflict for nature conservation in Europe that is far from being solved. REGHAB provides a unique opportunity to take the first step towards reaching a stable, long-term solution across Europe.
