In November 2015, Slovenia erected a technical security barrier in the form of a razor-wired fence along the most exposed parts (178 km) of the Slovenia-Croatia border. Over a 14 month period (11 November 2015 – 11 January 2017), carcasses of 24 ungulates (15 red deer and 9 roe deer) were found entangled in the razor-wired fence, giving a mortality rate of 0.13 ungulates/km of fence. Also, even earlier along the border between Hungary and Croatia a razor-wired and fixed fence were set. A systematic and continuous monitoring between Slovenia and Croatia has been established by Hunters Association of Slovenia, while between Hungary and Croatia we still do not have similar program, and data are deficient. Although the direct impact of the fence on wildlife mortality is of relatively low importance, over the long-term, the fence may pose a serious threat to wildlife via its barrier effect, resulting in fragmentation of habitats and disconnection of populations. Therefore, systematic studies are urgently required to determine the implications of the fence on spatial behaviour, movements and gene flow of key species in the border zone. Also, joint wildlife/game management plans must adapt and establish coordinated and common conservation strategies for all countries since it is not known how long the fence will be maintained.
