Salviamo l’Orso /Rewilding Apennines

During the summer of 2018 and 2020 I was working with Salviamo l’Orso and Rewilding Apennines. I was observing animals in the wild, filming wildlife sequences and documenting the work of conservationists. In the end we produced numerous videos for the social media of the organisations and a 25minute documentary about the Marsican Brown Bear and the organisation.

In the job of nature conservation and human-wild fauna conflicts mitigation, one of the most difficult threats to reduce is represented by the road collisions, which determine the loss of biodiversity, of human lives and damages of vehicles.
