European Rewilding Network webinar discusses relationship between nature-based tourism and rewilding
This year’s second European Rewilding Network (ERN) webinar saw 13 participants from seven European countries come together online to discuss nature-based tourism.
The vision of how Europe can be rewilded showing some of the latest insights, experiences and successful working examples is presented in the brochure “Making Europe a Wilder Place, a series of presentations of the forefront of rewilding in Europe”. This 34-page brochure is now available. The proceedings are the result of a full-day seminar organised by Rewilding Europe on October 9, 2013 at WILD10, the World Wilderness Congress in Salamanca, Spain.
On December 14, the last day of the successful Madrid Wild Wonders exhibition, Spain’s first ever Rewilding seminar was held at the Cañada Real Wildlife Park in El Escorial outside Madrid, under the headline “Making Iberia a Wilder Place”. The theme all through the day was how to turn present problems into opportunities for people and for nature.
This Friday, Rewilding Europe is hosting a rewilding seminar in Madrid. Titled “Making Spain a wilder place!/Haciendo a Europa un lugar más Salvaje”, the event will describe the rewilding situation in Spain and Europe, looking at different ways to turn problems into opportunities.
From 9 to 14 October, Rewilding Europe organized a Training Seminar on Wildlife Watching and Conservation Enterprise Development in Finland. Representatives of the five rewilding projects from various European countries travelled all the way up to Finland to learn from first-hand experience in the Kuhmo region, which is famous for its bear-watching facilities.
