This guide is a tool for the design of monitoring programs that will allow public administrations:
- Evaluate changes in the conservation status of the wild species of greatest concern.
- Assess progress towards the achievement of conservation and management objectives.
The target audience of the Guide are:
- Public administrations (City Councils, other local entities, Provincial Councils and the Basque Government). The Guide provides them with a common tool to assess the quality of the species monitoring programs that they must or want to finance (through subsidies or public contracts).
- Entities and people who actively work in the collection of primary biodiversity data (volunteers and professionals). The Guide is a tool to help design better species monitoring programs, more oriented to the needs of the Basque Country.
