Supporting the coexistence and conservation of Carpathian LargE CArnivores

Improving life with large carnivores

The Carpathians are home to large populations of lynx, wolfs and bears. In recent years, conflicts between large carnivores and humans have increased, but no one knows if this is due to growing populations because data are not collected in a harmonised way across borders. The LECA project introduces a consistent and efficient monitoring approach, which involves local stakeholders. It will result in up-to-date population information, coupled with effective conflict prevention measures.

More information will follow soon.
