The project aims at mitigating the risk to the shepherds of the Orobie Bergamasche Alps due to the arrival of large carnivores through the formation of groups of volunteers who can provide knowledge and practical help in all aspects of sheperds' working life .

The volunteers will feed shepherds with expertise and best practices on ecosystem conservation, while the shepherds will give their contributions in terms of practical experience and knowledge of the area.

The fruitful exchange of experiences and the designing of territorial marketing proposals should lead to a reduction of the conflict between shepherds and large carnivores, which will result in reducing damages to wildlife and improving the trust between environmentalists and shepherds.
