The Nordic Board for Wildlife Research (NKV) was established in 1971 after recommendation from the Nordic Council of Ministers in 1968.
The purpose of NKV is to promote wildlife research within the Nordic region, with particular emphasis on the continuous improvement of research quality and quantity, and the dissemination of knowledge both within the scientific and general communities.
The NKV will work to do this by:
- Sustaining and publishing the international scientific journal “Wildlife Biology”,
- Initiating and supporting Nordic Congresses of Wildlife Research at regular intervals of 4 years,
- Supporting workshops, symposia etc. on relevant wildlife topics, and
- Supporting students and researchers with respect to costs of travels that furthers Nordic cooperation.
Items in this list are given in order of priority.
Full members of the NKV are ministries, government institutions and agencies from Nordic countries. Presently the full members are:
The Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry
The Directorate for Nature Management, Norway
The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, Sweden
The Environment and Food Agency of Iceland, Iceland
The National Environmental Research Institute, Denmark
The NKV is open to associate membership of other institutions and organisations, both governmental and non-governmental. Since 2005 NKV has one associate member:
Office National de la Chasse et de la Faune Sauvage, France
The management of the NKV is exercised by the board.
