A unique environment

The 580,000-hectare Danube Delta, a complex, ever-shifting mosaic of channels, islands, forest, marshes and reedbeds, is Europe’s greatest remaining natural wetland. Divided between Romania, Ukraine and Moldova, its diverse habitats support a huge number of waterbirds and other fauna and flora.

Rewilding Europe’s rewilding efforts in the Danube Delta have been scaled up since the end of 2018, following a grant from the Endangered Landscapes Programme. Accelerating the recovery of natural landscapes, their ecological processes and wildlife across at least 40,000 hectares, ongoing rewilding activities are also bringing benefits to local communities through the development of thriving nature-based economies.


Wetland Restoration Officer

Rewilding Europe is now seeking a Wetland Restoration Officer (0.8 FTE) to boost wetland restoration in the Danube Delta rewilding area. The successful applicant will work with a wide range of stakeholders to lobby for, plan, develop and implement impactful wetland restoration projects.
