Pasturs courses for volunteers and shepherds

 

The alpine pasture season is coming and the Pasturs project has just finished training courses dedicated to pastors and volunteers who, in the coming weeks, are going to work together to implement a series of measures aimed at mitigating the risk to flocks arising from large predators.

By placing electrified fences and the use of livestock guarding dogs, our volunteers are now ready to establish a fruitful relationship with the shepherds in order to ease a good cooperation that, hopefully, will lead to mutual benefits both for large carnivores and livestock on the Orobie Alps.
