    Report your observations

    Contribute to current knowledge of bear distribution and movements in Slovakia. If you see a bear or signs of bear presence, tell us about it in as much detail as possible, including at least when, where and what were the circumstances. You can also send your photographs or video. We are also interested in articles about bears in the press, so let us know if you see something on television, in a newspaper or on the internet. If possible, send us the whole article and don't forget to mention the source and date.

    Spread the word

    Learn as much as you can about bears and how to keep them out of conflict with people. Pass on your knowledge to others. Some of our educational materials might help.
