EXPLORE OUR REWILDING AREAS

We are selecting large pioneering areas in Europe, where we are working with our local partners to make our vision a reality.
We hope this provides inspiration for hundreds of other rewilding initiatives, all across the continent.

We want more space for wild nature and wildlife across Europe. A Europe where natural processes can shape our landscapes and give us the good things in life, such as health and wellbeing, wholesome food and clean air and water. We see a future where wild nature is recognised as a fundamental part of Europe’s heritage and an essential element in a modern, prosperous, and healthy society.
