Exploring Slovenian forests together with NGOs

Posted - Aug 2, 2023

There are many NGOs working in wildlife conservation and animal welfare with whom we are happy to share the knowledge gathered in the scope of the LIFE Lynx project. With this in mind, we planned for them field trips, and hot summer months are ideal for that.  In July, Slovenian partners met with members of Societies Društvo za zaščito živali, Društvo študentov naravoslovja, Biodiva, and Dinaricum.  After first introductions about lynx and its biology and ecology, we talked about the project activities and the outcomes of the project. The discussion went on also, on how different stakeholder groups, such as hunters are contributing to lynx conservation and are a vital part of the LIFE Lynx project.
