The Ecological Continuum Initiative: restoring the web of life
The Ecological Continuum Initiative aims to maintain or restore ecological connectivity in the Alps by facilitating and catalyzing relevant projects and initiatives. The Initiative partners (Alpine Network of Protected Areas ALPARC, International Commission for the Protection of the Alps CIPRA, International Scientific Committee Alpine Research ISCAR and the European Alpine Programme of WWF) provide an interface between policy, practise and science to allow the exchange and pooling of knowledge, lessons learned and expertise. The work of the Ecological Continuum Initiative is supported by the Swiss MAVA Foundation for Nature. The Continuum Initative is cooperating closely with the the Platform Ecological Networks of the Alpine Convention (since 2006) and the EU-Alpine Space project ECONNECT (2008-2011).
