This programme was implemented by the Project Management Group and Nature Bureau.
The Project had a very experienced Team of International Experts led by the Team Leader Wolfgang Suske from Austria who is supported by four other Key Experts on Management Planning, Large Carnivores, Communication of NATURA 2000 and Impact Assessment.
