What does it consist of ?
Flora and Fauna radio activities consist of activating a regional or national park, national or territorial forest, a natural reserve, a marine park, a biosphere reserve, a coastal conservation site, etc, etc….
The aim is to promote the protection of the Fauna and flora and more generaly to take part in preserving our natural environment by activating a site on the radio.
How to activate ?
The station (radio and antenna) has to be located WITHIN the protected area, which means that it is an OUTDOOR activation = A PORTABLE activation.
Though, if your PERMANENT residence is located WITHIN the protected area, activating from your home QTH is permitted.
(you will have to prove that your home QTH is located within the reference that you activate).
Your call is YOUR DIVISION + CI/ the refererence of the activation, example : 104 CI/FF0083
