The Jäger app, used by hunters to easily and efficiently record their harvest to support science studies

The management of Red Deer (Cervus elaphus) has for decades been a highly controversial issue within wildlife management in Denmark. Due to contradictive believes, values and objectives, and a still increasing Red Deer population causing damages on crops and forests, no national management plan has been developed for a sustainable and long termed Red Deer management. On the contrary, the conflicting perspectives have increased and the public debate has reached a level of systematically distorted communication. The objective of the project is to explore alternative and more productive solutions to the present deadlock.
