A swallow

A swallow

A hedgehog

One of the hundreds of kills of dogs on Georgian roads every day

A nice shot for the boys and a bad one for nature

But there is some hope, at least for maybe the Brown bear in Georgia. He is much in Danger as I posted here
NACRES and Alertis are gathering information on captive bears in Georgia, they will analyze and try to find solutions for this difficult problem. Here is a appeal of assistance by Mr. Irakli Kutsia from NACRES.

Appeal for Assistance: Information Needed On Captive Bears

Dear Colleagues,

NACRES in partnership with ALERTIS is implementing the project – Captive Bear Assessment in Georgia.
The goal of the project is to study the captive bear problem in Georgia, create a comprehensive data base and develop an action plan to address the issue. On behalf of the NACRES I humbly ask you to help us in gathering information about bears kept in cages or other forms of captivity in private homes, parks, gas stations or restaurants in any region or town of Georgia.

In case you have such information, please, be kind to email me directly at irakli.kutsia@nacres.org Please, indicate the location where you found a bear and exact address if possible. Our team will visit the bear, study its condition, interview an owner and put the file into our captive bear data-base, which is being created by NACRES as a first step in trying to help solve this problem. Thank you in advance for your time and cooperation! Your help is greatly appreciated!
