Report on the conservation status of alpine predators

Posted on

The plight of Europe’s large carnivores has become an issue of growing conservation concern. Wolves, bears and lynx continue to be persecuted by humans and in many cases their habitats are under considerable threat.
While the precarious status of Asia’s tigers is widely known, some of Europe’s own top predators are in danger of quietly disappearing. Others face an upsurge in conflict with people as they try to reclaim parts of  their former ranges.
