Can coexistence with the Iberian wolf south of the Douro river improve? Local communities have spoken.
In a recent social study conducted by the LIFE WolFlux project, almost half of key actors interviewed considers that it is possible for the wolf to live in the region, but only if certain conditions are met.
A male Iberian wolf south of the Douro River was captured by camera traps with severe injuries caused by an illegal trap. The LIFE WolFlux project is working to reduce social barriers to help in the survival of this species in the region.
Complemented by other coexistence measures, the programme will reduce livestock predation by Iberian wolves, enabling the recovery of this endangered carnivore.
