At the top of the trophic pyramid, large carnivores are key elements in ecological relations governing the natural environment of Romania. They are indicative species of habitats quality and of functionality of inter- and intra-species relations between elements of the natural ecosystems. In the last century, large carnivores species were in Romania at the limit of survival, while in Europe they have disappeared from many regions, those is obligatory for us to have the social maturity of not moving in the wrong direction. Large carnivores are important species for the community, not just for small groups of researchers, hunters, protected area managers or nature lovers. They exist to remember us that the laws of nature were not written by humans. We believe that acceptance is the keystone of coexistence and that the responsible approach of management objectives is a shared desire of all stakeholders wanting continuity for the continuity of large carnivores.
