Easily accessible anthropogenic food sources are one of the greatest attractants for bears, that are therefore more likely to wander near human settlements. To maintain their natural wariness and consequently avoid possible conflicts situations, the organic waste leftovers should be managed responsibly and be properly protected. To raise awareness about the importance and to present the effective prevention measures, the manual of good practices with recommendations has been prepared within the C1 action. Since we believe it is of great importance to hand over effective project actions to local communities and implement them in regular use, the manual also provides short descriptions of how to make your own bear-proof compost bin or bear-proof housing for garbage container.

You can access the manual (in Slovenian) here.
