The Dutch Postcode Lottery has awarded Rewilding Europe a special grant of 2.2 million euros for the European Wildlife Comeback Fund. A huge boost for wildlife comeback in Europe, the grant will be used to support efforts to restore wildlife populations across Europe, with wide-ranging benefits for nature and people.
Launched at the conclusion of a high-level gathering in Vienna, the European Rewilding Coalition brings together Europe’s leading practical rewilding organisations. By working together, the coalition membership will accelerate landscape-scale rewilding across the continent.
Europe’s extensive network of protected areas play a vital role in conserving the continent’s natural beauty, flora and fauna. An exciting new partnership between Rewilding Europe and the EUROPARC Federation will help many to create the enabling conditions for wilder nature, delivering essential benefits for people, biodiversity and climate.
Rewilding Europe has signed a major financial partnership with the Ecological Restoration Fund. The funding will support and scale up practical rewilding and enhance the work of the European Wildlife Comeback Fund, thereby helping to realise the ambitions set out in our “Strategy 2030”.
A new partnership agreement will see German sustainability consultancy EnviroSustain support Rewilding Europe over the next decade. The collaboration showcases the ever-increasing support for nature recovery from the corporate sector, as well as rewilding’s long-term focus.
Four new wildlife hides have been built – and one renovated – in our Velebit Mountains Rewilding Landscape in Croatia, and are now open for bookings. This marks the start of an exciting new chapter in our partnership with SKUA Nature – one of Europe’s leading wildlife photography organisations dedicated to promoting sustainable nature tourism.
Thanks to a partnership with global law firm Hogan Lovells, a new series of short films showcasing the work of Rewilding Europe will begin production this spring. By demonstrating the beneficial impact of our rewilding efforts, this exciting series will boost outreach and help to scale up rewilding.
Funding from Fondation Ensemble will support the comeback of griffon vultures, Apennine chamois and white-clawed crayfish in the Central Apennines rewilding landscape. This contributes to the area’s overall rewilding vision and is good news for nature and people.
The Foundation’s aim to improve relations between nature and people fits perfectly with our vision that wilder nature is valued and treated as crucial for a prosperous and healthy society. The funding, which has been awarded on an unrestricted basis, will be used to advance rewilding in Europe.
