One of the goals of the project “Carnivora Dinarica” Interreg Slovenia–Croatia is a better and more efficient cross-border management of large carnivore populations in Croatia and Slovenia.
To achieve this, project partners carry out a number of activities, one of which is education of the public.
To this end, in addition to various workshops, the project also includes the printing of numerous publications on topics related to large carnivores. The educational and communication component of the project has been financially supported by the Office for Cooperation with NGOs of the Government of the Republic of Croatia.
The leaflet “We Are People, Guests in Nature” is the product of cooperation between the Slovenian Forest Service and WWF Adria.
Its purpose is to familiarise the public with the importance of large carnivores for nature and the local community, to show numerous opportunities for learning about large carnivores in the project area—Notranjska region in Slovenia and Primorsko-goranska county in Croatia—and to give recommendations on responsible behaviour of tourists during visits to the habitats of large carnivores.
Come and get to know large carnivores and the ways in which the ways in which local people coexist with them!
