Working Group Webinar #1

EUCOLD WG on Levees & Flood Defences – Webinar about animal activity on levees – 30 June 2021

This was a success, as 67 people attended in total from at least 6 different countries, Belgium, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Romania, United Kingdom, and probably more, as not all email adresses were given, and some email addresses did not include the information on the country.
