Is it possible for humans, bears, and wolves to coexist?

It is this question that gave our projects its name and illustrates our current activities.
But we quickly realised that we needed to do more than just work protect wolves in order to achieve results. What we need to do is introduce and implement radical changes in the relationship between humans and the natural environment.
Human behaviour, intentionally or unintentionally, creates wealth for the few and despair for the rest, despite wanting to do the opposite.
If we don’t change our ways, the natural environment as we know it, will disappear and it will be at the detriment of our own species.

Farmers& Predators aims to raise awareness and provide information about the state of the planet’s biodiversity.
We want to work with people who share our values and want to help counteract the damage that has been done to the natural environment. The project has a particular focus on initiatives that protect endangered species such as large mammals and predators. Activities will encompass fieldwork as well as campaigning.
 
Achievements

This project aims to promote peaceful coexistence between wild animals and humans (farmers in particular). There are two key actions we take to make this happen:

 
Reduce the Conflict: up until 2019, we have supplied 627 guard dogs to 150 farms that chose to peacefully coexist with wolves. We also provided training and food for the dogs.
 
A Possible Alliance: this is the next step. We promote the activities and produce of the farmers who made a sustainable, animal friendly choice. Important keywords for the farmers are quality, and respect for the environment and biodiversity – including predators.
 
● The project also supports the LIFE WolfAlps project, which won an award in the Nature category of the 2019 EU LIFE awards. The project was awarded with the prize for its “ability to involve a large audience in the debate on conservation and management of the wolf with a variety of approaches, methods, and languages”.
 
● We have also partnered up with the Anti-Poaching Training School, a project that’s been promoted by Italian animal welfare organisation Legambiente, in collaboration with the Arma dei Carabinieri and support of the Italian Federation of Parks and Natural Reserves.
This project aims to prevent and reduce the detrimental impact of poaching and use of poisoned baits. The school promotes and develops techniques that have already been adopted across the world to combat poaching of wild animal species, sustain conservation efforts (such as the elephant and rhinoceros in Africa), and instruct dog handlers and staff of voluntary associations and park rangers in anti-poaching methodology.
 

Important project results:

  • 0 farmers have joined the project and now rely on cruelty free prevention methods

  • 0 guard dogs are currently helping farmers in Tuscany, Liguria, southern Italy and more

How can we achieve this together?

  • If you have a dog or a cat, choose Almo Nature over any other brand

  • Spread the word! Talk about our initiative to relatives, friends, or anyone else who could possibly help. This will give a voice to wolves and other predators living in the EU

  • Support initiatives and sign petitions that are related to the project

100% of Almo Nature’s profits are used to help animals through various projects of Fondazione Capellino, in total transparency and without any external funding.

When you buy Almo Nature products, you act for change.

Provide a peaceful solution

We can protect wolves and help farmers, by providing sheepdogs and dog food on a long-term basis. There’s only one essential condition that the farmers need to adhere to: their sincere commitment to the well-being of the dogs and the predators.

  • I feel so excited to follow this project, not being expert or anything. I experienced magical moments, met incredible people, ate some unique cheese… learned. Farmers, heroic shepherds, there is still a lot to do and I will always be here to help you.

  • The dogs … are great eaters! Thanks to the amazing support of Almo Nature…which provided 3300 kg of kibble that we have distributed to the pastors participating in the project.

Support the work and produce of farmers who choose peaceful coexistence.

We’ll start to support the food production industry in the European highlands from 2019 onwards. The initiative has two conditions:

  • pay attention to quality, and show respect for biodiversity, including predators

  • create a a platform to support product sales from farmers who have/want to join the initiative

Want to get involved?

Some of us think there’s nothing we can do to protect wildlife or help to preserve biodiversity. But they are wrong, everyone is capable of helping nature. It’s the little things that make a difference. These are some of the actions you can take now:

  • Feed your companion animal

    Your cat or dog will enjoy a completely natural, high-quality meal, and 100% of the profits from your purchase will be allocated to our projects aiming to protect cats, dogs and biodiversity.

    • When you buy food for your companion animal, the profit is returned to nature.

    • We find new opportunities to protect animals, preserve biodiversity and restore the ecological balance through our projects.

    • We focus on effective solutions that sustain themselves in the long run, allowing you to take part in a lasting approach, rather than a one-off endeavour.

  • Share our idea with friends & family

    Follow us on social media and share our updates and stories with your friends and followers. Each share counts, and every purchase is an opportunity for another animal

    • Wild animals get a real chance at peaceful coexistence with humans.

    • Wild animals return to their natural habitats and have better chances to live and evolve there.

    • An increased number of people find out how they can help to preserve the biodiversity.

  • Speak up for nature

    Join us and we’ll notify you whenever your voice is needed for a cause, such as changing animal welfare legislation (e.g. by signing petitions or completing surveys)

    • A compassionate attitude towards animals

    • Less cruelty, more  love and care in the world
