EU Platform on Coexistence between People and Large Carnivores

Launch and first working session of the EU platform on Coexistence between People and Large Carnivores

The EU Platform on Coexistence between People and Large Carnivores is a grouping of organisations representing different interests groups which have agreed a joint mission:

"To promote ways and means to minimize, and wherever possible find solutions to, conflicts between human interests and the presence of large carnivore species, by exchanging knowledge and by working together in an open-ended, constructive and mutually respectful way"

In June 2014, high-level representatives of a range of stakeholder organisations signed an agreement on the key principles of engagement in the activities of the Platform.
