The project aimed at mitigating the risk to the shepherds of the Orobie Bergamasche Alps due to the arrival of large carnivores through the formation of groups of volunteers who provided knowledge and practical help in all aspects of sheperds' working life .

The volunteers fed shepherds with expertise and best practices on ecosystem conservation, while the shepherds gave their contributions in terms of practical experience and knowledge of the area.

The fruitful exchange of experiences and the designing of territorial marketing proposals led to a reduction of the conflict between shepherds and large carnivores, which resulted in reducing damages to wildlife and the improvement of trust between environmentalists and shepherds.
