Ponderful Bild

PONDERFUL will be of interest to everyone involved in water management and aquatic conservation in urban and rural landscapes, bringing new understanding of the practical role of a critical freshwater habitat: ponds.

PONDERFUL is an EU Horizon 2020 project, which will bring new information on the role of small waters for freshwater conservation and management, climate regulation, the delivery of ecosystem services and nature contribution to people.

The PONDERFUL launch will be opened by Dr. Tobias Salathé a Senior Advisor for Europe at the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance. We will be joined by leading international landscape ecologist and conservation scientist Prof. Lenore Fahrig who will explain why small waters matter, and how they have been overlooked in international environmental policy up until now.

The PONDERFUL launch will be a free virtual event held as a Zoom webinar. We hope that you can join us.
