In mid-September LIFE DINALP BEAR Steering group gathered once again, this time in Carinthia, Austria. At the beautiful castle Mageregg in Klagenfurt, steering group discussed the progress of the project, solved minor questions that appeared along the way of implementing the actions and dealing with stakeholders, and dealt with future working plans. On the following day, our reports about the progress of project actions were carefully listened to and examined by the project monitor, prof. Mitja Kaligarič. After a long-day work with the Steering group, he will report to the European Commission about the state, progress, implementation, and achievements of the project. We are glad that he was quite satisfied with our work, which is proceeding according to plans. This gives us fresh enthusiasm and motivation to continue building the way towards better co-existence of human society and brown bear.
