Bears in Romania
Serie is coming soon
For now just a shortlist of photographs
In Transylvania, Romania, there is a big population of brown bears and while their habitat shrinks, they are forced to search elsewhere. This ultimately results in conflicts between man and bear.
Meanwhile several towns in Transylvania, Romania worship bears with the traditional dance Ursul. A dance to fertilize and purify the soil, chase away evil spirits and to welcome the new year. The relationship between Romanians and these large carnivores has a rich history and this tradition is unique to the country.
