Salviamo l’Orso is a non-profit, volunteer-led association working to save the Marsican brown bear from extinction by appealing to everyone who cares about this unique species and its natural environment.
Our work pairs engagement with various authorities and organisations with practical on-the-ground interventions that help protect these bears.
We contribute to the world’s understanding of this species and the threats it faces
We encourage co-operation between organisations which are responsible for protecting the species
We make sure that any risks to the bears’ health and habitat are tracked and quickly reported
We evaluate and fund bear conservation projects and our members and volunteers deliver them
