Wolf-watching tourism in northern Spain has grown in recent years, sadly so has the eternal conflict between man and predator. Last winter a whole (non-conflictive) pack of wolves was illegally shot in the Cantabrian mountains.
The Wolf & Bio project hopes to help stop this happening again and promote a co-existence between farmers and wolves. Donations will be used mainly towards the prevention of livestock losses; providing livestock guardian dogs and training in their management, constructing electric fences, financing the building of temporary shelters for young livestock and leasing pastures for farmers who commit to these best livestock management practices.
Other measures include insurance subsidies and economic compensation following damages by wolves.
