translated by Patrizia Grigolo A young Marsican bear was photographed and filmed yesterday by some hikers near the Voltigno Plateau, in the area near Pescara of the Gran Sasso National Park and Laga Mountains. https://www.ansa.it/abruzzo/notizie/2020/05/10/orso-su-gransasso-sindaco-ciliegina-su-torta-per-estate_8ec47c9b-ab2b-4e9b-8279-f6f88744c3b6.html We are very excited to share these news, as it testifies to the bear’s ability to return to areas..

Cleaning underpasses from rubble and waste of all sorts is one of the actions provided by the “Bear Smart Community” initiative, which Salviamo l’Orso, the Monte Genzana Alto Gizio Nature Reserve,..

In this period, the European plum tree is in full blossom and its fruits are one of the most attractive food for the bear during the Summer, as the second part of the video “The bear and the fruit” testifies on. It was made by a camera trap in the territory of Gole del Sagittario..
The discreet eye of the camera trap reveals us the bear’s technique to climb a tree and reach the coveted fruits!
