Main Goals

Following its success in the South-Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region since its creation in 2020, the Human-Wildlife Initiative of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is expanding its actions in Spain, where similar issues are encountered.

The objective is to bring forth innovative proposals and concrete recommendations regarding the better integration of large wildlife in the management of Spanish territory.

The Spanish branch of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is launching this Initiative in collaboration with the Observatorio Grupo Campo Grande and with the technical assistance of the Fundación Entretantos.

It will identify and mobilize local actors, the "insiders," ready to develop concrete projects in favor of improved social acceptability and management of the interrelationships between wildlife and human activities (agriculture, tourism, hunting, environmental management).

Since its creation in 2020, around thirty projects have been supported in the South-Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, covering eleven target species: wolves, wild boars, chamois, mouflons, mountain goats, foxes, birds, deer, mustelids, rodents, and bats.

A network of individuals working in the field has been established to contribute to improving the coexistence between human activities and wildlife.

The Initiative in Spain will operate similarly to France, through an annual call for projects. The first call in Spain and the fourth in France were launched on September 25, 2023.
