Presentation of water management in polders for the protection of peatland and waders
The EU project LIFE Limicodra has been dedicated for 5 years now to the protection of waders. Since 2 years this protection is also supported by the agricultural program "Peatland-friendly water retention" of the AUKM (Agrar-, Umwelt- und Klima- Maßnahmen: Agricultural, environmental and climate measures) "Naturschutzgerechte Grünlandnutzung" (nature-friendly use of grassland ) in the project area of the LIFE project and the farmers are directly involved in the necessary measures.
On 13.06.2022, initial experiences with the agricultural support program were presented to farmers, representatives from various authorities, associations and the ministry in Mönkebude as part of a presentation and an excursion (documents for download under information).
The meeting met with a great response and a lively exchange took place. Now everyone is curious to see what the program will look like in the next funding period. Let's keep our fingers crossed that it will be a good program, that even more farmers will participate and that we will be able to do something for our peatlands and waders anywhere in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
