LIFEnews, the monthly LIFE newsletter, covers themes that are of importance to European policy on the environment and nature conservation, as well as the LIFE programme itself.
The most-read article of last year was the report on the first LIFE platform meeting to address riverine species. Held in September in Estonia, it was attended by representatives from more than 15 completed and ongoing LIFE projects tackling the conservation of freshwater species, particularly migratory fish. The three-day meeting focussed on species reintroductions, monitoring, migration barriers and fish passes, as well as the benefits of involving stakeholders and local communities in LIFE projects.LIFE projects restore rivers: migrating fish return.
