We invite you to join us!

As Rewilding Europe works to make Europe a wilder place, we are always looking to collaborate with conservation organizations, public or private institutions, foundations, companies and private individuals.

We welcome contributions of all kinds – pro-bono work, joint PR and marketing efforts, financial investment, donations, grants, media coverage, presentation possibilities at conferences and seminars, land donations, practical services, sponsorships and business partnerships.

If you or your company would like to make a positive impact on the wildlife, wild nature or local people in any of our rewilding areas, we would love to talk to you. Rewilding Europe offers many ways for individuals or businesses to make a difference. Here we have explained what options we have available for you.


Be a part of the European rewilding movement. Rewilding is a response to growing public demand for a more hopeful, ambitions and exciting form of conservation.  The interest and support of citizens like you, is the bedrock of the conservation movement. There are many ways you can help strengthen the European rewilding movement and be an active part of this growing community:

Actively promote rewilding via social media by retweeting, sharing articles and images and contributing your own content using #rewilding.

Choose rewilding as the beneficiary of your charity fund raising activities.

Include a visit to a rewilding area in your holiday planning.

Learn more about how rewilding compliments and extends established approaches to nature conservation.

Keep abreast of rewilding news and opinions and find opportunities to discuss these with your colleagues and friends.

Should you be an entrepreneur, conservation and/or business initiative that shares the rewilding principles, make sure to join our European Rewilding Network.

Become a corporate partner

Would your company like to engage in our initiative as part of your Corporate Social Responsibility programme, reduce your environmental footprint or would like to participate in voluntary biodiversity offsets? Rewilding Europe can become your ideal partner.

We invite companies to approach us for any support you think you can provide, ranging from specific services or products at reduced or no-cost, to in-kind advisory work or even financial contributions. Please contact us if you or your company is interested to engage with us and to tailor an approach that would best fit your strategy. Corporate partners to date are Clifford Chance, Toyota Fund for Europe, and Patagonia Environmental Fund. We are currently working with a number of other companies on such partnerships.

Become a major donor

Major donors to Rewilding Europe are private individuals or foundations who like to engage with us at a substantial level. You can make a significant difference to one of our projects, our portfolio in general, or to one of our specific activities.

We distinguish different options for primarily corporate entities and individuals who are prepared to donate 1 000 euros or more on an annual basis to our conservation work, with a typical focus on project activities. This can also be part of a one-off sponsorship or fundraising action that brings support to us and our work. If you or your company has any ideas, feel free to contact us.

Related to this, for private persons or companies residing in the Netherlands, there is also the possibility to provide an annual donation over a period over 5 years, with a 50% tax reduction. Please contact us for more information.

“Rewilding Europe serves as an example for a new conservation vision for Europe, where people can enjoy spectacular wild natural areas, providing benefits to both nature and people. We are proud to support this important work and look forward to continuing our cooperation.”

Invest with us

Invest in rewilding enterprises:
Rewilding Europe Capital

Rewilding Europe supports the development of nature-based businesses across our rewilding areas and beyond. Our team identifies relevant local entrepreneurs and businesses, welcoming opportunities to connect them with environmentally minded investors or potential business partners.

For this purpose, Rewilding Europe Capital welcomes partnerships with private individuals, companies and environmentally minded investors to collaborate in Rewilding Europe Capital’s mission and growth. This will serve as a precursor to a larger and more conventional conservation enterprise investment model as the initiative builds momentum and its investment track record. If you are interested in these opportunities, we invite you to contact us for more details.

Invest in wildlife comeback

Rewilding Europe’s rapidly developing European Wildlife Bank works to boost the numbers of wildlife in rewilding areas and to support natural grazing as a key ecological process. We put a particular focus on large herbivores such as red deer, European bison, chamois, Spanish ibex, wild horses and wild bovines. This innovative mechanism works at the European level, and already involves nearly 900 animals of different species and breeds.

You can help the European Wildlife Bank by supporting the purchase, translocation or management of animals as your own “investment”. In this way, you can become connected with your own ‘starter herd’ similar to an investment as herds will have annual growth rates between 15 and 25%. These growth will be used to expand the grazing areas or start new natural grazing sites.

Endowment Initiative

After working passionately and continuously over the past years to get Rewilding Europe off the ground, we are now prioritizing to ensure that there is a solid financial base from which we can secure our operations in the years to come.

As one of the ways to achieve this is to develop a new mechanism: the Rewilding Europe Endowment Initiative. This is an exclusive and dedicated financial support initiative that is unique in its set up and participation mechanism. A separate foundation, registered as a charity in The Netherlands, was established in 2017 with the purpose to contribute to the financial sustainability of the Rewilding Europe foundation for the medium and long term.

In a special brochure, you will find more information about the Rewilding Europe Endowment Initiative, how it works, how you can participate, and how it contributes to the overall objectives of our initiative.

“With the Endowment Initiative, participants will be able to contribute in a unique and personal way to the rewilding of Europe.”
