The Project area overlaps the area of distribution for bears in Romania, mountainous formations ranging from Romania – Eastern Carpathians, Southern and Western Carpathian area and the adjacent hilly area.
The Carpathian region of Romania, although it represents less than 2% of the Europe’s area, argues viable and stable bear population: about 35% of brown bears population.These large animals represent symbolic species for biodiversity conservation in Europe. It has an important role in the ecosystem by controlling the “top-down” the one who exercise on large territories for prey populations.
The presence of this species indicates natural habitats with a high ecological value and functional ecosystems that can be a model for ecological reconstruction in other parts of Europe.
Today, Romania is one of the few European countries where they kept the wild natural areas in the true sense and tourist attraction exercised by them only serves to demonstrate their importance.
