why we save the bear

The Marsican brown bear is in Critical Danger of Extinction and, despite the renewed commitment and interest of the institutions in charge of its protection, it still shows no signs of a decisive turnaround that could remove it from the danger of extinction.

In addition to the measures that need to be put into practice by the various agencies in charge of protecting the bear’s environment, a collective awareness is needed that recognizes the battle for the bear’s survival as a cultural emergency not only in the affected regions, but of the entire country.Securing a future for the bear in central Italy today has the same value and profound significance for Italy as the preservation of a unique archaeological site in the world, such as Pompeii. Around this awareness Salviamo l’Orso was born, consisting of a group of people who care about the survival of the bear and decided to make a serious commitment to ensure that this awareness infects the wider public. Let’s Save the Bear will not only lead a battle of cultural address and awareness-raising, but intends to engage in finding sponsors and private funds to take concrete action to help the species.
Save the Bear wants to do, concretely do.
