We issued the third issue of LIFE DINALP BEAR project bulletin “LIFE with bears”. Besides important ecological findings, results of project activities gave us interesting and crucial insights into the challenges of the human dimensions of brown bear management. Coexistence means searching for compromises; it means preserving good conservation status of bear populations, and it means keeping social carrying capacity and tolerance at an appropriate level. Project objectives aim to contribute to this mosaic of human-bear coexistence. We invite you to check our achievements in the year 2017, summarised informatively in the new Bulletin issue. You are kindly invited to read.
