Instead of being grateful and protecting wild-life in Slovenia, government is supporting farmers to breed sheep in the area of predators with subsidies, and than they press (with some trophy hunters) on government to pay them of for lost animals by wolf attacks and to hunt wolves down.
And this is certainly not the way to maintain sustainable development in Parts of Slovenia with wolf population (It is mainly South-west Slovenia and wolf population is shared with Croatian Gorski Kotar area). Slovenian Ministry of Environment still did not accepted appropriate strategy on wolf population. Instead of protection of wild-life some measures were taken that were preventing contacts between wolfs and bears and humans (special feeding places for wild animals in the woods, providing them support not to leave their primary environment and start closing to the civilization.
Slovenian media are not covering this topic in appropriate manner to inform the people on role of wolf population in Slovenia and it seems appropriate that international organisations start their campaign in order to protect Slovenian natural treasury because Slovenian government is still much more supportive to farmers instead of environmental protection as part of sustainable development which is not only economic growth and social development but also preserving natural resources and beauties for further generations.
