The Dutch rewilding area ‘Gelderse Poort’ is the first member of the European Rewilding Network, the newest initiative of Rewilding Europe aiming to connect and unite rewilding initiatives and activities all over Europe.
Tag: European Rewilding Network
Since the concept of rewilding was defined and expanded by conservation biologists Michael Soulé and Reed Noss in a paper published in 1998, projects and initiatives aiming to restore large wilderness areas, natural processes, corridors or keystone species have flourished all around the world.
Rewilding Europe is starting a new initiative: the European Rewilding Network. In the past decades many new projects that clearly link to rewilding have evolved, and many others are about to germinate. As the rewilding movement becomes more and more prominent throughout our continent, Rewilding Europe believes it is valuable to connect European rewilding initiatives in order to inspire others and share experiences. Therefore, the European Rewilding Network aims to establish a living network of many rewilding initiatives, to support rewilding in Europe as a conservation tool.
