We have teamed up with the NGO ‘Bioterra’ based in Zagreb, Croatia to monitor and research Croatian wildlife.
Bioterra is run by researchers, and seeks to monitor, record and protect the fantastic wildlife that can be found in Croatia. A major part of their work is using camera traps in remote wilderness to monitor animals such as wolves, lynx and bears.
Our partnership involves working specifically in Northern Velebit National Park and Biokovo Nature Park; beautiful rugged mountains with an abundance of wildlife, some of which is endemic to these regions.
There is also work to monitor the impact of huge green bridges spanning Croatia’s burgeoning motorway system – allowing mammals large and small to traverse safely and reducing human and wildlife casualties.
We directly provide the much-needed equipment for the monitoring programmes, as well as visits to assist the researchers and rangers involved in running the equipment.
We also help with data storage and processing - including working with citizen science projects such as InstantWild (find out more further down).
