  • We will show you preventive measures we have implemented to reduce damage caused by bears and wolves with the aim of improving coexistence with local people.

  • In the evening the programmme will be enriched with fantastic films about wolves and bears and, with a presentation on our projects, we will give you the chance not only to look deeper into our work but we will also discuss how you, too, can help.
  • Programme and conditions

    The meeting is intended mainly for people who have a few hours of free time to spare each month that could be used for systematic work on SWS projects. What exactly you would do depends on your skills and the possibilities open to you. It could be fieldwork monitoring carnivores or help with translations, improving our websites, creating and distributing education materials etc.

    The maximum number of participants is 10. You must send written confirmation to reserve your place (contact details below). On receipt of your reservation we will send you a programme and more detailed information. Accommodation will be arranged according to need near Liptovský Hrádok.

    Thanks to support from WWF the fee for participation is only 300,- Sk (€9,96). The price includes accommodation (1 night), food, the programme and membership of SWS for 2009. For those travelling from further away, we can arrange accommodation on the Friday night before the event (at your own expense).
