Natural Grazing Facility

Does your organisation have a surplus of, or a need for large herbivores to conduct natural grazing activities? The Natural Grazing Facility connects demand and supply of herbivores among organisations dedicated to rewilding principles.

Scaling up natural grazing

Natural grazing is an important ecological process delivering increasing benefits across Europe. Rewilding Europe is playing a very active role in the reintroduction and restocking of large herbivores across Europe.

Through the Natural Grazing Facility we aim to champion the widespread adoption of natural grazing practices throughout Europe by connecting demand and supply of herbivores among organisations dedicated to rewilding principles.

The Natural Grazing Facility aims to help bring back more natural densities of herbivores in our European landscapes. These big grazers and browsers play key roles in the natural functioning of our ecosystems.

Main target species

Species considered in the Natural Grazing Facility are large mammal herbivores relevant to conduct natural grazing in Europe. This includes native grazing and browsing species (e.g. deer), but also functional analogues of extinct European species, like rewilded horses and bovines.
