The latest study (Spring 2021) entitled “Cantabrian bears. Demographics, coexistence and conservation challenges”. has now been published and makes fascinating reading.
Corresponding to its singularity, ecological value and its rarity, the Cantabrian brown bear is protected under the highest legal protection categories of the different administrations. It is considered a Priority Species in the European Union Habitats Directive, is strictly protected under the Bern Convention for the protection of the European wildlife and is also categorised as “Endangered” in the Spanish Catalogue of Threatened Species. Given these categorisations, the state and regional administrations are confronted with the challenge of conserving the bear at the same time as protecting the numerous uses of the mountains they inhabit.
You can find the link to the pdf download of the publication here.

Quite a good article in El Pais in English about the pros and cons of bears and the tourism that has grown over the last few years.November 11, 2021 at 8:09 am #1116clive
FAPAS are up in arms again after the Jefe del Servicio de Caza del Principado de Asturia (who by the way also represents hunters and hunting) Has totally ignored the work of FAPAS and not mentioned them in his speech about the future of the brown bear and also proposed plans for re introduction into Portugal…
They also ridicule the plan to live trap wolves instead of hunting them especially as there is no explanation as to what will happen to the captured wolves… hmmmmmmm
