European Commission has chosen the nominees for this year’s "LIFE AWARDS”, which recognize the most innovative, inspirational and effective LIFE projects in three categories: climate action, environment and nature protection. They have nominated 15 nominees, five in each category.

International project LIFE DINALP BEAR, which was lead under the coordination of Slovenia Forest Service (SFS) and that ended last year, has been selected as one of the 15 finalists for the LIFE Awards 2020! LIFE DINALP BEAR will compete for the award in the category “Nature protection” together with other four nominees (LIFE for Safe Grid, WOLFLIFE, LIFE+SCALLUVIA, LIFE-Aurinia).

To SFS as a coordinating partner and the whole project team from Slovenia, Croatia, Austria and Italy, this nomination represents a confirmation of all the efforts that were dedicated to our work, confidence in the results achieved and a motivation to continue our mission of nature conservation. With the help of knowledge, communication and compromises, we can achieve an ultimate goal shared by every single European country: to leave the biodiversity of this planet in a shape that will guarantee the prosperous life of our descendants.

The Slovenia Forest Service is a public institution, established by the Republic of Slovenia, which performs public forestry service in all Slovenian forests, irrespective of ownership.

Our tasks and activities are connected with all fields of forest management on the national, regional and local levels: forest management planning, monitoring of forests, silviculture and forest protection, use of forest technologies, construction and maintenance of forest roads, monitoring of wild animal populations, hunting, forestry extension service for forest owners, research work, rural development activities, raising awareness and the education of forest owners, the general public and youth. The Slovenia Forest Service does not perform any felling, extraction, transport and selling of wood, nor forest trade. 

With approximately 730 employees, mostly forestry engineers, the Slovenia Forest Service is the largest forestry institution in Slovenia and a forestry institution of European importance. We operate by the principles of the Slovenian forestry school, planning and monitoring the implementation of sustainable, close-to-nature and multifunctional forest management. Our motto is: “Preservation and close-to-nature development of Slovenian forests and of all their functions for their sustainable and good management and use as well as nature conservation in forest space for the good of present and future generations.”

At the state level, the Slovenia Forest Service is organised with its central unit in Ljubljana, at the regional level in 14 regional units, and at local level into 69 local units and 391 forest districts. SFS also comprises 10 hunting reserves.

The Slovenia Forest Service is currently participating in 15 ongoing international projects. Since our founding, we were a partner or the lead partner in 33 finished projects, among these LIFE+, Interreg and projects by other funding mechanisms.
