Thanks to a longstanding reintroduction programme, the European bison population in the Southern Carpathians rewilding landscape in Romania is now growing rapidly. As it expands, rewilding efforts are shifting their focus towards coexistence and ecological impact.
Seven cinereous vultures have just been released in the Iberian Highlands rewilding landscape in Spain, as part of an ongoing reintroduction programme. The restoration of this iconic and ecologically important bird as a breeding species will enhance the health of the landscape, support economic growth, and help to prevent the outbreak of disease.
A pioneering initiative saw the release of roughly sixty dung beetles in the Landes De Gascogne (Gascony Moors), France, this week. The release, supported by the European Wildlife Comeback Fund, supports restoring crucial natural processes in the soil.
A grant from Rewilding Europe’s European Wildlife Comeback Fund has seen herds of 20 fallow and 20 red deer released on Bilgorodskiy Island in the Ukrainian Delta.
Animals play a critical role in the global carbon cycle. Published today, a new paper shows how enabling the recovery of wildlife populations through rewilding would go a long way to mitigating the worst effects of climate change.
The aim of the recently established European Wildlife Comeback Fund is to scale up keystone species reintroduction and population reinforcement across Europe. Over the next few months the fund will support a wide range of releases, with benefits for nature and people.
The ability of the Eurasian beaver to create new habitats for a host of wildlife species, and to deliver a range of benefits for people, is amazing. Once on the verge of extinction, the beaver’s expansion across Europe over the last 60 years is a cause for celebration. But what exactly are the animal’s positive impacts?
The reintroduction of these endearing and ecologically important rodents, which were once widespread across Ukraine and Europe, will help to create a healthier and wilder steppe landscape.
A new grant from the Cartier for Nature foundation will support rewilding in both the Southern Carpathians and Iberian Highlands, with a primary focus on the reintroduction of free-roaming herbivores.
