Interaction Bear-wolf Ii
Photo By Roberto Isotti

  • Title: Interaction Bear-wolf Ii
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Italy
  • Nearest Area: Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park
  • Description: WHILE WAITING FOR HUMAN ACTIONS, CAN BEARS HELP THEMSELVES? One of the main challenges of Italian conservation management is the protection of the Apennine Brown Bear (Ursus arctos marsicanus). This big mammal is endemic to Central Italy and lives only in Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park. Its conservation status is extremely worrying because of its biological needs and the high human population density in Italy. While waiting for Human actions, the last bears still living in the park are trying to ensure their own survival. One of the probable their strategies is to take advantage of the presence of wolves in the same area by feeding on the wolves captured prey. This would be a great lesson for humans, on the one hand because it reminds us that any conservation issue must have a holistic approach, on the other hand because it shows that nature is always cleverer than we expect.

    Thank you kindly for the compliment on the "Winter White" image Les! After enjoying your wave image, I thought to share this one also from here in California. I think this day was about 25 to 30...
