This workshop, which was held jointly with the UNEP Convention on Migratory Species, and Chaired by Lars Magnusson (ENPE Board member and LIFE-ENPE Wildlife Working Group chair), was attended by 37 delegates and speakers in total, coming from 16 different countries across Europe and Mediterranean region, including Israel, Tunisia, Egypt and Algeria. The venue was the Centro Nacional de Educaion Ambiental (CENEAM), in Valsain near Segovia, Spain. Set in the peaceful surroundings of the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park.

We were delighted with the number of countries participating in the workshop and with the high quality and breadth of presentations. Discussions were lively and focussed with good opportunity for networking for all participants.

We were particularly pleased that Francisco Javier Cachón de Mesa - Director-General, Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Food and Environmental Affairs opened the workshop, accommodating this in his busy schedule to do so. Workshop summary details, including presentations that are available for sharing will be posted on the ENPE and CMS websites in due course.
