The LIFE Bears with Future project contemplates celebrating meetings with collectives who undertake recreational activities in bear areas. The objective is to interchange experiences and publicize the recommendations on how to safely move around in the mountains housing brown bears. Fungi collecting is one of these activities.

These meetings started in March with talks and the distribution of materials. A digital infograph has been developed in collaboration with each of the associations and/or federations which have signed a collaboration agreement, such as a specific version of the video «Recommendations for visiting the Brown Bear Mountains»

A talk was given to the Cantabrian Mycological Society in March and to the Asturian Mycological Society in April, while activities started in June with the Galician Mycological Federation, via two days with talks and field excursions, on  17 June in O Courel and on 1 July in the Ancares area of Lugo, interchanging experiences and knowledge about fungi and bears.

The “Bears with Future” Project, co-financed by the European Union LIFE Project, will be carried out until 2025. It is coordinated by the Brown Bear Foundation in partnership with the Biodiversity Foundation (Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge), and the Natural heritage Foundation of the Castilla y León regional government. The Government of Asturias is co-financer, via the Directorate General for the Environment and Rural Planning, of the Department of Rural Development, Agriculture and Fisheries. Tierra Pura Foundation collaborates technically and co-finances the project.
