Permits for environmental interventions

The use of snowmobiles is strictly regulated in Norway and one must obtain permission for any off-road driving. One must also obtain permission from the local authorities and land owners before carrying out any interventions in the natural landscape such as setting up fences or installing equipment that are highly visible. To collect protected species (including all vertebrate species), permission must be obtained from the Norwegian Environment Agency (Milj√łdirektoratet). Interventions or experiments causing stress or pain on vertebrates must be approved by national authorities. All users of the field station are themselves responsible for obtaining the necessary permissions for their research. Sticks and other material used to mark up study sites must always be removed after the project has finished. Make sure you record GPS positions and keep track of any such markings. Installations and markings that are left in the field for more than a few weeks should always be registered at the research center.
