Conference : The return of the wolf in Wallonia, from fantasy to reality

The natural recolonisation of the wolf in Wallonia is well underway: today, three packs are established, and many transient wolves in search of territory have been sighted in the area.

But who really is the wolf, and how does he lives ? What are the reasons for its return? How is this species monitored on a daily basis ? What impact can it have on human activities ? What actions does the Walloon wolf plan to support cohabitation with this species ?

To answer these questions, the MuMons welcomes Vinciane Schockert, biologist and mammal expert at the SPW in the wildlife monitoring unit, and Sébastien Lezaca, field naturalist at Forêt et Naturalité. They are both members of the Wolf Network set up in Wallonia in 2017.

The spruce bark beetle: Crisis or opportunity for a better forest?

Where the majority of foresters and the media see a danger to ecosystems, Forêt & Naturalité sees in the bark beetle crisis a unique opportunity for the regeneration of a more natural and wilder forest. Through the bark beetle crisis and the chain of reactions to it, Forêt & Naturalité analyses the ideological foundations and lobbies at work in Walloon and international forestry policy.
