Those of us who research on wildlife and predators are based at Grimsö research station, situated in Lindesberg municipality in Bergslagen. The research station was established in 1974 as an ecological research station with the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency as its accountable authority. Since 1992, Grimsö has been part of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). Grimsö constitutes the Wildlife Ecology section of the Department of Ecology. Today it is also a member of SITES, a national infrastructure of field research stations financed by the Swedish Research Council.
The Swedish Wildlife Damage Centre, which informs and educates authorities and farmers about damage caused by protected wildlife and how to prevent it, is also based at Grimsö. In our research we apply and provide new ecological knowledge in order to enable biological diversity to be preserved and allow us to make use of wildlife and forest natural resources in a sustainable way.
