Rewilding Europe’s tenth anniversary celebrations have seen five Dutch rewilding sites simultaneously receive official European Rewilding Network certification. Paying testament to their efforts and expertise, this milestone occasion highlights the huge progress made in Dutch rewilding.
A mosaic of forest, scrub, grassland and heath is being restored in the Netherlands to boost biodiversity. The reserve’s firm focus on natural grazing and natural processes is a valuable addition to the ongoing knowledge exchange between members of the European Rewilding Network.
This April a herd of seven European bison from the Netherlands arrived at the Lille Vildmose protected area in Denmark, which is a member of the European Rewilding Network. Their presence will help to boost biodiversity and support the health and further growth of the entire European bison population.
In the face of an increasingly volatile climate and rising sea levels, allowing the Scheldt to overflow in a controlled way and reconnect with the land has created a chain of wetlands that bring benefits to the local communities and an array of flora and fauna.
Our newest member, Bunloit Rewilding, has a bold vision. To regenerate nature, increase biodiversity, capture carbon on a grand scale and re-energise a local community’s economy, while promoting a new method of land management.
The rewilding of land, even on a relatively small scale, can enrich wild nature and the lives of people connected to it. Joining the European Rewilding Network will help Green Sod Ireland deliver its community-focused rewilding vision.
On March 20, people across the planet will celebrate the first-ever #WorldRewildingDay, raising awareness of rewilding and our need for it. Join us on this special day and help us to spread the message that the time to heal nature is now. Are you #ReadyToRewild?
Located in the Greater Côa Valley in northern Portugal, the Wild Côa Network unites enterprises who share a vision for a wilder future. It will accelerate development of the local nature-based economy, enhance the tourist experience and boost support for rewilding.
The development of nature-based economies is a core objective of rewilding. Participants in a European Rewilding Network webinar that took place in November learned more about how this is happening.
