Rewilding Europe now offers the perfect opportunity for you to become an active part of the rewilding movement in Europe by supporting the actions that we are working on. Come experience how great is it to see nature bouncing back! As a token of our appreciation we will thank you with a nature-related gift or even invite you to spend a day in the field with Rewilding Europe team in one of our rewilding areas!
Wild and free horses
Wild horses speak to our imagination as symbols of freedom and wild spirit. Rewilding Europe is working to bring back the wild horse to where it once belonged, into the European landscapes, where it used to be a vital part of the ecosystem for hundreds of thousands of years.
Return of the European bison
The European bison, the largest land mammal on our continent, was severely hunted until it finally became extinct in the wild in 1927. By then, only 54 individuals remained, all in captivity. Rewilding Europe has made an action plan and works with many partners to bring back the European bison to its ancestral lands by establishing new wild bison populations in several of our rewilding areas, and creating new breeding stations. Until now we have released more than 30 bison into European landscapes and will continue to do so through cooperation with wildlife parks and zoos in Europe.
Cameras: Eyes in the wild
Since they first became widely available a decade or so ago, wildlife cameras have revolutionized conservation biology. Wildlife cameras help us to monitor and obtain critical data about wildlife and their habitats and are needed in our daily work in all of our rewilding areas.
People around the world are supporting us – see why
Rewilding is the most beautiful idea I have ever seen in the world. The idea to bring back Europe some semblance of it’s past animals is breath-taking and desperately needed.
– Raleigh Latham
The European bison is an impressive animal and it deserves our efforts to establish it as an integral part of our European ecosystem in sufficient numbers.
– Roland Babilon
Sustainability is a key word for our ability to live off and on this planet. If the rewilding of Europe can be achieved it is a large step in a direction where it has become a reality.
– Niclas Ohlsson
A small symbolic amount just to feel like being part of it.
– Maarten Kleijne
I would love to see these guys roaming free all over Europe!
– Philip Parkes
I want to help in the restoration of the open landscape ecosystem of the east of Europe.
Saving the wild life in Europe is something vital for our future and every European citizen should contribute to this.
Because if we don’t help, no one will, and because the result from the cause is here to stay for us and our children.
Children – hope for nature
If we want our future generations to understand that nature can take more care of itself, we have to address, educate and engage the children and plant an idea of a positive co-existence with nature. To achieve this, Rewilding Europe develops youth education programmes and activities for children and youth in our rewilding areas.
Bringing back the eagles
These eagles are not only spectacular and wonderful birds; they are also an indispensible part of our ecosystems, and a major attraction for bird watchers and nature tourists that visit these areas to see them. Rewilding means securing hunting habitat and availability of prey.
Interest in the wild
One of the main objectives in our work is to create pride, public support, new engagements and a more positive attitude amongst the wider public and stakeholders for a wilder Europe. For this, we use mass-media campaigns, photo missions, filming, media trips and press releases, website and social media work, exhibitions and many more.
