Carnivore Damage Prevention News (CDPNews) is a professional newsletter focused on the complex challenges presented by the coexistence of large carnivores and human activities. It acts as a forum to raise awareness of practical solutions, to facilitate collaboration among researchers, policy makers, agricultural consultants, hunters and farmers and to improve knowledge exchange between countries as well as across the boundaries of traditional disciplines.

CDPNews was first published in 2000–2005. Following a break of eight years, the next series of issues was supported by the European Commission within the LIFE MedWolf Project. The Swiss centre for livestock protection, AGRIDEA, took over coordination in 2018 and published eight issues within the LIFE EuroLargeCarnivores project.

The next period from 2023-26 will be funded by WWF Switzerland and WWF Germany.
