Wildlife Service Finland has decided to give up the responsibility of directing and coordinating wildlife tutor activities as of 1 January 2023. The original intention was to create a network of wildlife tutors and get the system going. Consequently, the plan was to transfer the coordination responsibilities to a third party. In 2022, Metsähallitus searched for an operator to take over and continue the wildlife tutor activities, but unfortunately one was not found.
At best, the wildlife tutor programme involved 400 tutors all over Finland. Over the years, the tutors reached more than 40,000 children and over 2,000 adults. The wildlife tutor programme has been a great project with an important goal. We would like to thank all the wildlife tutors for their cooperation!
