Camera traps of LIFE Lynx project set in Croatia, near town Slunj, have captured a bear with radiotelemetry collar. Scientists working on LIFE DINALP BEAR project have confirmed that this bear is monitored as a part of their projected. The bear was captured in National park Plitvice lakes on May 4th 2017, it was filmed on July 14th, but since August 17th the collar stopped working. During this period, the bear was active on a territory of approximately 700 km2. It is fantastic how two LIFE projects on different species can cooperate!
