Rangers from Europe and from the German Twinning partner Israel recently met in the Bavarian Forest National Park for a train-the-trainer week. Our ERF Board member and Portuguese ranger João Correia was involved and captured the week’s learnings in an expert report.

So if you want to know from ranger to ranger how wildlife management for cloven-hoofed game is handled in the Bavarian Forest National Park, how the extreme bark beetle infestation there is creating new, more diverse life, what the rangers, visitor centers and trail network offer national park visitors, and much more – be sure to read the illustrated report!

Dead trees remain in the Bavarian Forest National Park, offering specific habitats for a set of species like fungi, insects and birds during their decay process. Rangers are involved in monitoring, also that of the bark beetle, which attacks spruce in particular and causes a lot of deadwood.
