Preventive measures and safe alternatives to poison baits that resolve wildlife-human conflict
Several preventive measures exist that can reduce damages inflicted on livestock and game species by other animals, helping resolve potential human-wildlife conflicts, especially with predators, which is the most common motive behind the intentional placement of poison baits across the Balkans. These preventive measures act as safe alternatives to poison baits as they do not harm nature, wildlife and public health.

The BalkanDetox LIFE project will introduce and promote these preventive measures to key stakeholders, such as farmers, hunters, game managers, livestock breeders, who are relevant to the practice of illegal wildlife poisoning. Project teams will tailor these awareness programmes to address the main drivers behind poison use in each project country.
