Rewilding Europe is a pan-European organisation, with a central team and landscape teams intrinsically linked and working together closely. Although independent entities, the landscape teams form an integral part of Rewilding Europe’s organisation through the formation of a Network Executive Team and the signing of a Network Agreement. The co-production approach enables us to work at a European level, while local partners take the lead in rewilding initiatives adapted to a local context.
