Traditional Ecological Knowledge of Brown Bear as a Conservation Tool in the Rodopi Mountains

The goal of this new project is to investigate the Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) held by local people in the Rodopi (Rhodope) Mountains about the Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) as a means of uniting wildlife research, cultural preservation, conservation education and ecotourism, in order to conserve the bears themselves, the ecosystems in which they live, and the rural heritage of the local communities with which they coexist.
