On 11 October 2016 the "Magyar Fejlesztési Központ" made an interview about the project, including footages of the construction sites. The material will be avaiable through their website.

 

 

During 13-15 September 2016. representatives of KASZÓ Zrt. visited the LIFE+ Ausseerland project hosted by the Österreichische Bundesforste. They were introduced to the different habitat improvement to protect the aquatic organisms, primarily the stone crayfish, the yellow-bellied toad and the Italian crested newt. The representatives were able to see the methods used in that project to: convert the forests to mixed species in order to increase their stability and diversity; prevent the forestation of certain areas; and to reserve the drying out of the muskeg.

 

A short video in German used to introduce the project on our first networking visit is available on the following link:
