European Union

LIFE NATURE is an EU programme to support environment and nature conservation projects and especially supports projects with nature and species conservation aims.

Within LIFE so-called LIFE starter projects were introduced in 2002 to facilitate potential project applicants the preparation of a promising project and completion of a LIFE-application in due form. Aktion Zwerggans applied with the project ”Sichere Zugwege für die Zwerggans – Vorbereitungsprojekt” (Save migration routes for Anser erythropus – preparation project) for a LIFE starter project support. In autumn 2002, the EU granted the project (LIFE2002NAT/ST/D/05) along with 12 other projects out of a variety of applicants. Also WWF Finland was granted support for its project to protect Anser erythropus: ”Conservation of Anser erythropus along its European migratory route” (LIFE2002NAT/ST/FIN/24).

LIFE STARTER obliges the recipient to hand in a complete LIFE application in due form within the granted application time. Aktion Zwerggans in co-operation with their Finnish partners prepared such an application in 2003. Shortly before the deadline for handing-in the application, the desired Swedish partner was not able to grant necessary support for the project. In co-operation with the Finnish partners and in consultation with the European Commission, Head office environment, the LIFE-application was decided to delay for one year. Currently Aktion Zwerggans together with its partners works to complete the application.
