Biography

My, or I should rather say our experience as a school has certainly been very interesting and stimulating: starting with the summer training for teachers and ending with the project for local schools, EUlulati sulle Alpi, organized in the school year 2020-2021 by the Aree Protette delle Alpi Marittime and carried out in the Vernante school (CN).
The children, who were already very curious and motivated even before starting the activities, were able to learn a lot not only about the wolf as an animal in itself, but also about its social nature, with precise roles within its pack. But that’s not all, they also had the opportunity to understand how fundamental the species is for our forest ecosystem and to go beyond the common thought that for many it is still seen only as an element of danger and annoyance.
The direct confrontation with the shepherd and the hunter was also very useful, from whom they received a lot of input and subsequently a lot of ideas to go beyond the prejudices. From this experience many pupils left impressed and fascinated not only by the animal, but also by the professional role of the park ranger.

Biography

I already had the opportunity to collaborate with the first LIFE WOLFALPS project (2013-2018) and to participate in the Summer school in Trento in 2014. In September 2020 I gladly repeated the experience, which gave me excellent ideas and new stimuli and insights to work with my classes. I would like to thank the experts who followed us with great professionalism and gave us the opportunity to compare different points of view, bringing together students and teachers, breeders, hunters, biologists, park rangers and veterinarians in order to give a complete view of the wolf issue. It is a good way to stimulate the critical spirit and the formation of autonomous and informed opinions in children… and adults! The knowledge acquired and the materials shared by the project will be useful to me in the years to come.
