Bears Belong to Nature

Bear Belong to Nature, is a documentary produced by PPNEA with the suport of Alertis and Euronature.          

Keeping the most majestic animal of our forests in tiny cages and in horrible conditions, is a reality that happens against legal and moral norms. All bears that we see in captivity originate from the wild, being taken as cubs after their mother had been shot by illegal hunters. It is time to say stop to this phenomenon! PPNEA has started an awareness campaign for the long term conservation of this threatened species.
All of us can do our part by informing friends on this illegal and unacceptable practice. Join us!

Bats of Albania  

Albania is really a small country, but its nature have a big heart! Until now, about 32 species of bats have been identified in Albania, out of 45 species present in Europe. In order to further develop the knowledge on Albanian Bats, PPNEA has organized a workshop on bat monitoring techniques. This has been quite a unique workshop because for the first time it brought together local and international bat researchers together with speleologists and students who are interested in bat research in the country. The workshop was followed by practical on field training in the Albanian alps caves.

We have interviewed few participants, listen what they sees as priorities in bat research in Albania. Click on the player icon below to listen to the intervies.

The predators return

The recovery of large carnivores in Europe is a great success for nature conservation. At one third of mainland Europe, at least one species of large carnivore is present, according to an article in the scientific magazine Science that researchers from 26 countries have contributed to.

This is the first ever Science paper with authors from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina and  Macedonia. There have been 76 researchers contributing to the article, among them three from PPNEA. They have been hardly working for 10 years monitoring and collecting data on large carnivores in Albania.
