The biodiversity of insects is rapidly decreasing worldwide. In order to counteract this decline of insects, the three nature parks are jointly launching a project on insect protection, which is financed by the Environmental Protection Fund of the Ministry of Environment.
The main reason for the extinction of insects is the human influence on suitable habitats, which is why the aim of this project is to raise awareness and implement broad-based measures for insect protection. Since selective measures in protected areas do not reach far enough, it is also important to promote measures on diverse areas outside protected areas, such as verges, green spaces or gardens. Success in insect protection can only be achieved through a global project that has an as broad impact as possible. For this reason, various stakeholders (e.g. municipalities, ponts & chaussées, farmers, the population, businesses) in the region are involved in order to sensibilize them to the issue, give advice and implement targeted measures together.
Furthermore, a large-scale and long-term monitoring network is planned in order to have a solid data basis with which targeted conservation strategies can be developed and the success of implementations can be scientifically documented.
