HABITAT PROGRAM CONNECTIVITY

One of the basic courses of action for the conservation of the brown bear is to guarantee connectivity between populations and breeding nuclei by developing measures that facilitate the movement of specimens and the necessary genetic exchange. The FOP works in the communication corridors and in the zones of expansion, creating a network of small forests to favour the movement of the bears. In addition, 6 the plantations around motorways encourage bears to use the most suitable tunnels and passages and avoid collisions with vehicles.

FOP also works on identifying the “black spots” of roads and railways, where the chances of accidents are greater, to propose specific measures that make these infrastructures safer and more permeable.
