We thrive to improve the coexistence between humans and wildlife

EU LIFE Project: Euro Large Carnivores

PlayPlay

 

 
 

Finding ways to coexist with wild animals is one of the most controversial challenges of our time. Increasingly, wolves, bears, lynxes, and wolverines return to their former habitats, causing conflicts between conservationists and livestock owners. To reduce conflicts, we need to educate ourselves and support farmers, landowners, and citizens who are confronted with "large carnivores".

Understanding how to protect livestock effectively and prevent conflicts with large carnivores from early on is a keystone of our work in the "Euro Large Carnivores" Project (ELC).
