Municipality of Sodražica is the first area in Slovenia where we started with the distribution of bear-proof compost bins within the project LIFE DINALP BEAR. On this occasion we organized a press conference on 12 October in Sodražica. Some important local and national media representatives attended the conference, where we presented the causes why bears enter in the vicinity of human settlements, the conflicts that arise and the solutions that we are introducing as part of the project activities. Together we took a look at the features and the functioning of such a bear-proof compost bin and we also visited the first recipient of the compost bin in the area.
