"Our project tackles the issue of how can humans and non-humans live with each other. How can the human influx to the islands be a net gain to biodiversity and the health of species. Our project answers this, and contributes to ecological evolution, by introducing a way of seeing non-human and human actors as equal stakeholders whose needs and wishes are considered, in macro and micro scale."
