Salviamo l’Orso

During the summer of 2018 I was working in Italy for my Erasmus placement at Salviamo l’Orso. I was observing animals in the wild, writing scripts, filming wildlife sequences and documenting the work of conservationists.
 
 

A short video produced for Salviamo l’Orso , Riserva Monte Genzana and Rewilding Apennines to show the efforts of the volunteers and staff, in order to restore an area of high natural value in the territory of Pettorano sul Gizio. More than 200 meters of abandoned metal fence and barbed wire was dismantled.

 
 

From 23 to 27 July 2018, volunteers from Salviamo l’Orso worked to restore the signage of the M2, M6 and M7 paths in the Mainarde area of the Abruzzo National Park
Me? I just had to film them and produce this 1 minute highlights video.
