Background

Regions

The diversity of hunting practices and landscapes in Europe is unparalleled. 

Just as FACE Members gain great strength in their united pan-European state, so they gain great value by working closely with their neighbours who often share the same specific issues, whether it’s the impact of rapid development on the Mediterranean coastline on migrating birds, or the management of large carnivores in the North.
