ACHLI’s mission is to preserve natural and cultural landscapes in sensitive areas where the Iberian Wolf is present, looking towards active contributions from several sectors of society, such as public environment organisms, local governments, wind energy promoters, local residents and environmental associations.
ACHLI´s mission is achieved by developing projects that benefit Iberian wolf habitat conservation. All projects take into account the actual status of the wolf packs within the target areas, as well as the socioeconomic surrounding, which in many cases is essential for the success of the projects.
ACHLI manages a conservation fund, named “Iberian Wolf Habitat Conservation Fund” (Wolf Fund). This fund results from contributions made by some of our members to fulfill compensation measures established by environmental authorities. The Wolf Fund is exclusive for supporting Iberian wolf habitat management and conservation projects.
Presently, ACHLI develops its activity in two priority target zones: South of the Douro River and Alto Minho.
