The Saimaa Seal LIFE project produced many types of information on the Saimaa ringed seal to support the work of the authorities, to enrich the experience of nature tourists and to provide environmental education for schoolchildren. In addition to Metsähallitus Parks and Wildlife Finland, reports, brochures and other material were also published by the other project partners: University of Eastern Finland, Natural Resources Institute Finland, University of Turku, Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (South Savo and North Karelia), Finnish Federation for Recreational Fishing, The Finnish Association for Nature Conservation and WWF Finland.
