Monitoring the implementation of mandatory constraining environmental measures for the Iberian Wolf in the new powerline Vieira do Minho-Pedralva (1400 kV) and Posto de Corte de Vieira do Minho (400 kV)

Monitoring the implementation of mandatory constraining environmental measures for the Iberian Wolf in the new powerline Vieira do Minho-Pedralva (1400 kV) and Posto de Corte de Vieira do Minho (400 kV)

The purpose of this project was to monitor the implementation of the constraining environmental measures directed to the iberian wolf (Canis lupus) in the construction area of the powerline. The work included a detailed characterization of the spatial use, reproduction sites, population size (including genetic characterization) and daily activity patterns of the iberian wolf in the region surrounding the projected powerline. It was found that the main area of presence/activity of the wolfpacks in the region was far from the powerline construction area. Therefore, apart form some precutionary measures, it was not considered necessary to stop the construction during the reproductive period, as previously imposed by the AIA authorities.
