This third Rewilding Europe newsletter is focused on the five rewilding areas that have all started working.
On each of them, you will read about progress they have made during the first months of work. During the initial stage of the projects a lot of planning, partnership development and basic information collection is needed, to prepare well and to create ground for rewilding activities. Apart from this, more practical work is being done as well. Please read about preparing the re-introduction or restocking of chamois into Velebit, bison into the Southern Carpathians, beaver into the Danube Delta, and the planned releases of local breeds of horses and cattle into Western Iberia.
Also at the central level in Rewilding Europe, there has been a lot of progress on rewilding work over the last few months, e.g. setting up a European Wildlife Bank and starting to develop the Rewilding Europe Bison Action Plan.
