Rewilding Europe is delighted to welcome the LIFE PRIMED project to the European Rewilding Network. With rewilding sites in both Italy and Greece, the project is working to develop and scale up innovative environmental engineering solutions and promote community engagement and nature-based tourism. This addition takes the number of network members to 66 (including Rewilding Europe’s eight operational areas), distributed right across Europe.
