AKU and EOCA: FOR THE PROTECTION OF AREAS OF NATURAL AND UNSPOILT BEAUTY

From 2006 European companies in the outdoor sector, united together as members of EOCA (European Outdoor Conservation Association), contribute towards the conservation of areas of natural and unspoilt beauty and their eco-systems by way of fundraising to help finance specific environmental projects. There are currently 125 EOCA member companies and AKU has been a member since 2009.

Every year company members can put forward up to 3 projects that they would like the Association to finance. A panel of judges nominated by EOCA selects the most deserving environmental projects to support. There is then a vote by the public and one by the member companies.

For the 2015 candidates, AKU endorses the APOLLO project (protection of alpine pastures in the Gran Paradiso National Park, Italy) promoted and run by researchers from the Istituto per la Dinamica dei Processi Ambientali del CNR (Institute of Environmental Process Dynamics from the National Research Council, Italy) and the Gran Paradiso National Park. The APOLLO project passed the first round of selection and is now competing for the €30,000 prize in the ‘Alpine’ category.

You can vote for the APOLLO project from 4th to 19th October 2015 and contribute to sustaining and improving biodiversity of alpine pastures right away.

APOLLO: (protection of alpine pastures in the Gran Paradiso National Park, Italy)

The Gran Paradiso National Park has a long history of human presence and, during the last millennium, agro-pastoral activities have determined the treeline and the composition of plants and animals in sub alpine and alpine belts which, as a consequence, are a real mix of pastures, meadows, shrublands, wet areas and forests.

This array of habitats hosts many rare and threatened species, yet abandonment of traditional farming systems is causing habitats to turning to shrub and woodland, and the overexploitation of the remaining pastures is leading to the loss of rare species.

This project will create a “good practice” list for two different showcase areas covering 100-150 hectares which will be implemented by herders via formal agreement.

Results will be communicated and awareness spread via public events to help visitors and locals understand and appreciate the local biodiversity and traditional ways of life.
