Our travelling exhibition “Large Carnivores and Livestock Protection” can now be visited for free in the headquarters of the UNESCO bisophere reserve Rhön. The headquarters are situated in the Groenhoff house on top of the Wasserkuppe, one of the highest mountains in Germany north of the alps.
The exhibition informs about the return of large carnivores to cultural landscapes in Europe and how coexistence between carnivores and humans can work. Experiences have shown that especially the coexistence of wolves and farmers pose a challenge in areas, where the wolf is returning after decades or even century long absence. The exhibition shows how livestock protection can help to tackle this challenge.

The exhibition will be in the biosphere reserve Rhön until the 31st October. This is the next stop of the exhibition after being displayed in the Ukraine.
