ARCTUROS was founded in 1992 in order to put an end in the phenomenon of the 'dancing bear' which was at the time a common sight around Greece. Since then ARCTUROS has been actively working for the conservation of large carnivores both in Greece and around the Balkans. Through applied research it gathers information that allows dynamic intervention in cases where important habitats are threatened or destroyed by large technical works such as roads, dams, quarries and so on. At the same time it carries out Special Environmental Studies in areas of high ecological significance. Over the last 15 years ARCTUROS has developed initiatives based on legislative provisions previously not put into action, which improved existing regulations or the establishment of new provisions.
IDEAL Bikes Company decided to support the NGO's goals, and donate 10 bicycles. This way the volunteers will have the opportunity to come through everyday difficulties with an extra "helping hand". From our side we would like to wish that the ongoing effort aiming to the protection of the wildlife in Greece, brings every year, as far as the targets of ARCTUROS are concerned, better results.
