The following activities are the main goals of the project.


A: Preliminary processing and management actions
B: Compensation for use of plots of land
C: Tangible conservation actions of species and habitat

D: Monitoring of actions;
E: Goals achieved
F: Coordination of the activities related to project and project monitoring meetings.


Each activity is divided into secondary section.

A1 – Individuation of appropriate area, feasibility studies on reintroduction and habitat mapping in Sardinia and in Corsica.

A2 – Preliminary,  Definitive and final design – Signature of the agreements between project leader  and  associated partners - Studies on territorial and environmental characterization supporting Sites of Community Importance (SCI) - Preliminary,  Definitive and final design according to management plans direct to remove threats and habitat conservation

A3 – Genetic study of animal life in Corsica and Sardinia – One of the most important risks for the conservation of Red Deer is the consanguinity and the consequent loss of genetic variability.

A4 – Education of monitoring staff   - education of staff involved in monitoring activities of new population of Cervus elaphus corsicanus in Sardinia and in Corsica.


B1 - Compensation for use of plots of land – Purchasing of plots of land are not expected. There is a compensation for land property owner.

C1 - Infrastructures and fences – it will be realized seven fences and seven turrets for capture and temporary detention

C2 – Capture, marking and radio collar wearing – Capture, marking and radio collar wearing and health checks

C3 – Creation of new population in Sardinia and in Corsica – creation of new population through translocation in Sardinia and in Corsica

C4 – Creation of ecological corridors - It will be realized grasslands to obtain feeding of Red Deer.

C5 – Creation of troughs and meadows – In order to distance Red Deers from cultivated lands it will be realized troughs and meadows.

C6 – Realization of reflectors, light signals, installation of Red deer repelling devices

C7 – Environmental improvement acts – Forestry improvement acts

D1 – Periodic population and habitat monitoring – reintroduced animals will be regularly controlled starting from the release date.

D2 – Periodic health checks – the reintroduced deers will be captured for periodic health checks.

D3 – Data collection and analysis – data are collected and transmitted via GSM at elaboration centers where are used through GIS system

D4 – Monitoring of actions C4-C5-C6-C7

D5 – Socio-economic impact analysis in project areas

E1 – Communication plan and publicity materials – the web site of the project is the principal mean of communication.

E2 – Diffusion of the project and creation of a web site – This web site is based on two concepts: Transparency and participation

E3 – Meetings with local community

E4 – Importance of Awareness to schools

E5 – International convention on reintroduction of endangered animals of community interest

E6 – Installation of panels and billboards in the project’s areas

E7 – Importance of the project in socio-economic-tourist view

E8-E9 – Networking with other similar Life+ projects

This website is the main service to the project’s objectives and actions; it is based on two concepts: transparency and participation.

The project will be spread through meetings with the interested operators, in order to reinforce the spread of the project’s philosophy that is based on the valorization of these areas.

The awareness campaign will take place in the schools that are located in areas interested by the project, in order to transmit to new generations the importance of the environment and the species, with their wealth in value and peculiarity.

An international conference will take place, before the end of the project, to discuss about the fauna management.

In order to spread the objectives of the Natura 2000 and LIFE projects’ objectives, two kinds of panels will be installed: informational panels and educational panels.

The success of the reintroduction’s projects is influenced by socio-economic and tourist aspects that are identified as indispensable element of a modern and multidisciplinary management approach. For this reason, the study and knowledge of the public attitude towards the species are very important.
