Tauros have been released into the Greater Côa Valley for the first time. The herd will play a vital role in restoring grassland and woodland habitats in this rewilding landscape in Portugal.
A pioneering initiative saw the release of roughly sixty dung beetles in the Landes De Gascogne (Gascony Moors), France, this week. The release, supported by the European Wildlife Comeback Fund, supports restoring crucial natural processes in the soil.
A grant from Rewilding Europe’s European Wildlife Comeback Fund has seen herds of 20 fallow and 20 red deer released on Bilgorodskiy Island in the Ukrainian Delta.
“A New Path for the Velebit Mountains”, an enthralling 15-minute documentary by Emmanuel Rondeau, tells the story of rewilding in this beautiful part of Croatia. At the end of March, a premiere in the local town of Gospić drew a large and diverse audience.
Rewilding can deliver game-changing benefits for people and nature, but only if it is scaled up dramatically. Continued financial support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery is critical to Rewilding Europe’s upscaling efforts.
Animals play a critical role in the global carbon cycle. Published today, a new paper shows how enabling the recovery of wildlife populations through rewilding would go a long way to mitigating the worst effects of climate change.
Restoring the world’s wildlife populations through rewilding would deliver a huge range of benefits to people and nature. While there are many challenges to the scaling up of such rewilding, a newly published paper outlines measures that might help to overcome them.
The aim of the recently established European Wildlife Comeback Fund is to scale up wildlife reintroduction and population reinforcement across Europe. The fund’s first grant has just enabled the release of two juvenile Eurasian lynx in Western Pomerania, enhancing the genetic diversity of the area’s existing lynx population.
Today, rewilding is inspiring an ever-growing number of people to support and practice nature recovery. With the theme #RewildingHope, this year’s World Rewilding Day focuses on rewilding’s beneficial impact and uplifting vision.
