More than 20 journalists and three TV Stations attended the successful and highly informative press-conference organized by the Naturschutzbund Austria with the support of Kurt Kotrschal and the European Wilderness Society.
The Naturschutzbund also started a petition to demand:
- that the wolf can safely return and stay in Austria
- that the politician support and finance herd management programmes to support the alpine farmers on protecting their livestock against possible wolf attacks
- that the know-how about wolves get improved and less emotional
- that a coexistence between humans and wolves in possible
Please sign the petition: Give the wolves a chance
Two independent studies from the opposite spectrum of the wolf discussion confirmed simultaneously that almost 70% of Austrians are for the return and the protection of the wolf in Austria.
