Call for nominations IENE Awards 2018

Deadline April 30, 2018

The IENE Steering Committee invites all IENE members to propose nominations for the IENE Awards 2018. The award is given in two categories, the Personal Award and the Project Award.

In the past few decades, the construction of roads, waterways and railways has left the natural areas in the Netherlands fragmented, as it were. Wildlife has increasingly become trapped in unnaturally small habitats.
