End of trials in Wölferlingen

Tags : 

Spring came in and it has already become summer. For ecology, the environment and the wildlife, this means a lot. Especially wild boars are leaving the woods in search for food in the fields. Now that the whole area is having plenty of food as a result of the sunny spring, wild boars don’t specifically go into the trial field anymore. Possible new trials at this location will start in the autumn.

Researchers of Liverpool John Moores University and Bird Control Group are now viewing and analyzing the video and photo material from the test site. This location is within a large Natura2000 area and contains plenty of wildlife. The camera footage is showing plenty of deer, wild boar, hare, fox and some different bird species. The researchers are now looking for footage where the LIFE Laser Fence laser is causing any reactions in the wildlife behavior. Sufficient reactions are a proper basis for drawing any conclusions from the trials.

Maintenance visit of BCG in Wölferlingen, Joep Everaers & Tomas Peeters

Tags : 

Certified Installer Tomas Peeters and Project Manager Joep Everaers of Bird Control Group traveled to the Life Laser Fence test-site location in Wölferlingen, Germany. The Life Laser Fence Autonomic prototype has been operating there for already 10 weeks. Joep and Tomas went there to perform maintenance to the device and reposition cameras and wild-cameras. They concluded that the device was operating well, even though the weather was very cold last month. They obtained photographs and video footage from the cameras and wildtrap cameras which are going to be analysed on animal’s behavior and reactions to the laser at the office of Bird Control Group in the Netherlands. For now it can be confirmed that the location is rich on animal species like wild boar, deer, rabbit, fox and multiple common bird species. They all have been spotted in the area around the system.

Notice boards for dissemination of Laser Fence

Tags : 

Volterra has designed the notice boards which are a valuable tool to disseminate information about the project to indirect stakeholders and the wider public.

At five of the six trial sites the partners have placed a notice board with a description of the project in Spanish and English. Additionally, two project partners have placed a smaller sized copy (A3) of the notice board at their office in their respective working languages.

A pdf version of the notice boards is available through our download section.

Below you can see the installation of notice boards at our partners´ facilities and trial sites.
