Launch of the platform to help resolve social conflicts over large carnivores

Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, participated in the conference organised for the launch for the new platform where farmers, conservationists, hunters, landowners and scientists can exchange ideas and best practices on sharing the same land with large carnivores. The EU Platform on Coexistence between People and Large Carnivores will support constructive dialogue between key stakeholder organisations at the European level.
The European Union is home to five species of large carnivores. All suffered dramatic declines in numbers and distribution as a consequence of human activity, but increasing protection and public awareness about their vital role in healthy ecosystems have caused many populations to stabilize or increase, and to return to areas from which they had been absent for decades or even centuries.
The representatives of the eight stakeholder associations signed the platform agreement.
