Public awareness and disseminations of results
Action D4: Production of a portable educational kit.
A portable educational kit will be produced, that will interpret the main ecological functions of Cypriot landscapes and will present the target species as representatives of the whole fauna of Cyprus. Sticker will be designed and produced and an illustrated booklet of approximately 32 pages will be designed and printed. The booklet will contain a short story in the form of a comic or a fairy tale, interpreting the relationships of the target species and other wildlife to their habitats and to the landscape management practices. All the above items will be used by schools at a national level, in order to raise awareness among children of local inhabitants, concerning the ecological functionality of a semi-natural landscape and the way people can improve it by introducing small-scale habitat manipulations.
