Poaching in Serbia is not the focus of the public and the media, and we rarely hear more about this topic. Poachers are targeting numerous species of animals, from those that can be legally hunted with permits, to those out of the hunting season, and to protected and strictly protected wild species. The scale of poaching is large, and it has a significant impact on biological diversity and the protection of wild species in nature. At the panel, we will find out what measures are implemented to prevent and suppress poaching, which institutions are competent and responsible, what court proceedings look like in these cases, but also how to improve cooperation between competent authorities, civil society organizations, and citizens in effectively preventing poaching in Serbia.
