36.A new strategy against the poisoning of large carnivores and scavenger raptors: anti-poison dog units

“One of the most serious threat for the conservation of species of carnivores like bear, wolf and scavenger raptors (...) is represented by the illegal use of poison. The aim of the LIFE+ ANTIDOTO project, realized in the Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga National Park (Italy), in the Andalusia Region (Spain) and the Aragon Region (Spain), is to adopt and disseminate innovative measures for the fight against the illegal use of poison.”
