Marking another step forward in Swedish rewilding, we are delighted to announce the recent appointment of Henrik Persson as the team leader of Rewilding Sweden.
Natural forests are good for climate, nature and people. Funded by a grant from the country’s Postcode Foundation, a new initiative is working to scale up forest rewilding in Sweden.
Before they suffered at the hands of man, the European bison, wild forest reindeer and musk ox once roamed widely across large parts of Sweden. Reintroducing and enhancing populations of these large native herbivores can benefit both wild nature and the people of Sweden.
Rewilding Sweden has been carrying out river restoration work in Swedish Lapland since 2016. Newly funded efforts will now focus on removing barriers from the River Abramsån, promising benefits for migratory fish, local communities and wild nature.
Given a thumbs up by the local entrepreneurs who participated, the informative and inspirational event will hopefully boost rewilding-related nature-based tourism in the area.
