Compensation for sheep losses in Norway

Year: 2010 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Minimizing conflicts with livestock husbandry is the most important challenge for the conservation of wolverines. In Fennoscandia, few areas exist within the wolverines’ range where there is no conflict potential with sheep and/or domestic reindeer. For example in Norway, the practice is to leave sheep unattended on mountain pastures to graze during summer. Higher stock numbers and the loss of herding and livestock guarding traditions have increased the potential for conflict with wolverines, as well as other predators.
