The European Rewilding Network | Bringing together rewilding initiatives from all over Europe
The objective of our groundbreaking European Rewilding Network (ERN) is to bring rewilding initiatives from all over Europe closer together, empowering each network member with the information and tools to be more successful in their rewilding endeavours. The ERN’s diverse membership stretches right across Europe, with significant potential for further growth. Rewilding sites range from small private reserves to national parks. Members are involved in everything from the restoration of rivers and food chains, wildlife return, species reintroduction and natural grazing to wildlife hide building, changing forestry practices, enterprise development, nature-based tourism and applied research. Are you curious to learn more about the network, its members, or are you interested in becoming an ERN member?

Hamatethy Farm: Rewilding in Cornwall
At Hamatethy on the edge of Bodmin Moor in North Cornwall Yan Swiderski is rewilding 600 acres. The land is low stocked with a small, slow-growing, almost wild herd of Welsh Black cattle that eat only the abundant grass and forage here – 100% pasture fed, leading natural lives outside beyond thirty months old. Alongside these animals thrives a host of wildlife in the sky and the undergrowth. The presence and activity of the cattle here is helping to expand an existing breeding cuckoo range. White storks and voles are found here, barn owls and kestrels hunt small mammals in the long grass. #rewilding #organic #naturebasedsolutions #wildlifecomeback #ecosystemrestoration
A Forest Worth Fighting For
Under the warrant of fighting a bark beetle infestation, the Minister of the Environment of Poland ordered a three-fold increase of the logging in this protected forest. Concerned citizens from Poland and Europe have flocked to an activist camp set up in the heart of the forest. While activists protected the forest on the ground, a group of environmental NGOs took it to the courts. European Court of Justice finally ruled in April 2018 that the logging operations in Białowieża forest were illegal. Soon after the harvesters left the forest and the Minister of Environment was fired.
Rewilding Portugal: The fire surveillance
Portugal has been ravaged by wildfires, like the one in Serra da Estrela, that destroyed nearly 28,000 hectares of natural areas. Rewilding Portugal has been on a mission to mitigate and prevent this issue. Each day they deploy a surveillance team to scout the area on motorbikes for fires and to help put them out. Aside from that, herds of Sorraia horses introduced by the organisation roam their land. One can clearly see there the effect of natural grazing on wildfire prevention. By eating dry vegetation and clearing the ground, the horses indirectly stop the fire from spreading. #rewilding #fire #wildfires #wildfire #portugal #sorraia #climatechange #climateaction #firesurveillance #firewatch #firefighter

Wolf Watch UK welcomes Bosch, the new wolf.
Tony Haighway, founder of Wolf Watch UK introduces Bosch, the new arrival at the sanctuary. Tony tells a story of how a visit at Yellowstone National Park in the USA sparked his passion for wolves and talks about the project of wolf reintroduction there. But there is more to rewilding than predator reintroductions and everyone can contribute their bit to restoring nature in their local area.
