Biking and mountain biking enjoy tremendous success and are poised to grow even more. With an ever growing number of GPS tracks and wide reach of outdoor platforms and social media the management of protected areas is increasingly challenged.
Launched by the Mountain Bike Tourism Forum Germany in April 2021, the NAT:KIT aims at developing, testing and spreading best practice in bike visitor management. Initiated by ENOS board members Tilman Sobek and Nico Graaff a toolkit of analytical, communication, intervention and monitoring measures will be developed together with three German protected areas over the course of the next two years. The resulting manual and online training sessions will be made widely available to support protected area administrations in their conservation efforts. The NAT:KIT project is financially supported by the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation with funds from the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
