Bear protection measures for beehives and sheep herds in the Italian Alps
The prolonged absence of bears from the Alps has meant a gradual loss of knowledge and know-how in the local populations as regards the best practices to avoid human-bear conflicts. WWF Italy together with local authorities is thus promoting a widespread program of education, particularly in areas in which the bears’ return is expected after a long absence.
Bears are ready to return, we must be prepared to welcome them back.
