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.
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.
● Fondazione Capellino supports the Nate Libere (Born Free) project, founded in 2017 by ENPA to protect the loggerhead sea turtle (caretta caretta).
