Large carnivore populations are increasing in numbers and spreading to new areas in Europe, thanks to the conservation measures that have been taken. This has aroused considerable interest in large carnivores but also given rise to some concern and public debate.
The Metsähallitus map service Excursionmap.fi will soon be usable on mobile touchscreen devices, including the most common smartphones and tablets. In the form of the Excursionmap.fi service, the mobile version will be available in Finnish (m.retkikartta.fi), Swedish (m.utflyktskarta.fi) and English (m.excursionmap.fi.).
