A day to “dismantle” the rich flowery anecdote about the species that recurs in the media and, not infrequently, becomes a management practice. A seminar morning, in which the evidence emerging from the updated analysis of the scientific literature on biology, ecology and management of the species will be illustrated by thematic sections.
An afternoon of a round table, in which the points of view of the various actors involved will follow one another until the opening of the final discussion with the aim of critically reflecting on the current management tools and "looking up" to outline the long-term prospects for the species.
It is the first event organized by the GLAMM - Group for Large Mammals Conservation and Management - Group for the conservation and management of large mammals, founded within the Italian Teriological Association with the aim of affirming the "evidence-based" approach and stimulating a cultural growth of the world of conservation and management of large mammals in Italy.
