Since Saturday, june 4th, there is a new LIFE DINALP BEAR info point available in ZOO Ljubljana, next to the bear enclosure. The interactive portal is full of information about bear biology and ecology, threats to its population and solutions for better coexistence.

As part of the European Green week, about 300 visitors took part in educational workshops and were able to take a close look to sculls of slovenian large carnivores. They were also able to touch and feel their fur. Project activities and research materials were presented.

Four aditional info points were installed across bear area in Slovenia (TIC Cerknica, TIC Pivka (Park of Military History), TIC Kočevje and Hotel Rakitna). Soon there will also be six info points installed across the bear area in Croatia.
