Coexisting with Large Carnivores: Challenges and Solutions
Tuesday, 17 October 2017 - European Parliament, Brussels
Recent data indicate that most large carnivore populations are stable or increasing in Europe’s densely populated multifunctional landscapes. While this trend provides a reason to celebrate, many conflicts arise.
These conflicts often evoke a number of questions, for instance about current management and damage compensation schemes, as well as their legal status in certain geographic ranges.
The conference “Coexisting with Large Carnivores: Challenges and Solutions” will discuss these challenges and present some solutions to improve existing conservation/management strategies for large carnivores in Europe.
