Meeting of the Carpathian Convention stakeholders 2012
Based on the invitation from the Bílé Karpaty Education and Information Centre we took a part on meeting of the Carpathian Convention stakeholders which was held from 22nd to 23rd November 2012 in Brumov-Bylnice town. The topic of our contribution was "Protection of large carnivores in Beskydy PLA".
We've got only single game camera, again ...
... because the second one placed on the Čupel mountain in PLA Beskydy was stolen. It is a significant loss for us, because the equipment for our work is purchased only from membership donations.
We found out with sadness in our face that something is missing there ...
National Wolf Awareness Week 2012
As usual, we celebrated the National Wolf Awareness Week 2012 also in the Czech Republic. Our event took place from 13th to 14th October 2012 in the ZOO Olomouc. We explained to visitors important role of large carnivores for ecosystems. Nice fall sunny day brought to us crowds of visitors, mainly on Saturday.
The visitors donated us totally 475 CZK. This amount will be transferred to ZOO's account as a sponsorship for breeding Hudson bay wolves. Big thanks to all donators!
Where is the Wolf?
Simple question, but difficult to be answered if we talk about wolf population in the Beskydy mountains. On the other hand, the title of this article is also the name of the popular contest for the students of NC State University. The point of the contest is simple. Leader of the contest takes the picture of the mascot somewhere in the NC State University campus and then the students have to guess exact location within the campus where the photo was taken.
So why this question?

National Bear Awareness Week 2012
In celebration of National Bear Awareness Week 2012 we held our traditional enlightenment stand in the ZOO Olomouc. A lot of visitors had been lured by our exhibit of skulls and books, despite the cold (on Saturday also rainy) weather. Most of the time we presented our exhibits to kids. But the topic of our speech was also the population of large carnivores in the Czech Republic or the history of wolf domestication.
