Recently, PAN Parks and Rewilding Europe agreed to work more closely together on protecting existing wilderness as well as increasing wilderness, wild areas and wildlife numbers in Europe.

Rewilding Europe has become one of the new beneficiaries of the Dutch Postcode Lottery.

Rewilding Europe would like to offer you the possibility to financially contribute to our work. Although our main financial support comes from our strategic partners, we have found there is also interest from private individuals who very much like our work and want to support it. We have already received donations from people from different countries in Europe. We thank you very much for that!
In each of the five rewilding areas, there are teams that are actively working to make their area into one of the inspiring rewilding examples in the Rewilding Europe portfolio. The leaders of these five teams and their short biographies are found on our website.
Seven Sayaguesa cows and one bull arrived yesterday at the Tauros programme breeding site in Keent, Netherlands. Together with the four animals still to arrive, this will contribute to the faster transition from a highlander-mixed herd to a more Tauros-like herd.
