Challenge

The project intends to support the population of Brown Bears in Albania . The beekeepers kill the bears in order to protect their beehives by bears attacks. The ones benefiting from this include : the population of bears and the beekeepers. We aim to build two electric fences in the two most problematic areas of the state where bears are frequently killed (Diber and Permet).We will also offer an environmentally friendly method for solving the conflict among beekeepers and bears.

Solution

In order to protect the bears population in Albania, the project will firstly promote an environmentally friendly method of protection in 7 districts. Secondly, the project will involve the construction of 2 electric fences in Permet and Diber. On the other side, we will train forest guardians about the way of treating bear cubs found in captivity. Lastly, the project will do everything possible to train forest guardians and inspectors to apply the law of protecting wild fauna.

Long-Term Impact

The project will be a model for our state in order to support environmentally friendly methods of the protection of bears populations. It will also eliminate the conflict between beekeepers and farmers. The project will involve all the regions of the state and all the beekeepers in Albania ( about 43 000 beekeepers). Our project will affect authorities to include compensation/founding schemes for the construction of electric fences.
