The morning will be devoted to describe the concrete conservation actions undertaken under the Project LIFE WolfAlps: from the preventive methods promoted to contrast wolf attacks on livestock to the illegal killing control, from the development of new wolf ecotourism programs to the control of hybridization, also through the discipline of the recovery of injured or dead wolves in Piedmont.

In the afternoon, some of the leading international experts will present to the public the updated status of the wolf population in the Alps shared among different countries: an opportunity to discuss in depth the important issue of coexistence between wolf and man, for which a dedicated discussion panel will close the day.
