Conference: Biodiversity in Human-Impacted Landscapes


The first version of the annual ELTI-PRORENA conference addressed the topic of biodiversity conservation efforts occuring outside protected areas and within human-impacted landscapes, in regions that often receive little attention but prove vital for overall landscape conservation. Approximately 120 participants from the governmental and private sector, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions attended this conference.
