Title: Alister - the European hamster an iconic animal in Alsace
Creator: Région Alsace; et al.
Abstract: In France, the European Hamster (Cricetus cricetus) only lives in Alsace and its population is dropping sharply. In 1972, there were 329 Alsatian towns where this animal lived; in 2014, this species is only present with certitude in 17 towns, mainly located in the South-Western area of Strasbourg. A specific action plan targeting protection of the hamster in Alsace, with the 2007-2011 National Action Plan (NAP), was aimed at boosting populations in the three Priority Action Zones, and halting population decline. In spite of progress, the viability threshold in Alsace for the European Hamster still has not been reached. Because of this, a new NAP for the European Hamster was put in place for 2012-2016. The Alister Project is a complementary and innovative approach. [Information of the supplier, modified]
