A new collaboration between Rewilding Europe and for-purpose venture Earth Today means anyone can now sponsor the rewilding of land in the Greater Côa Valley. The overall aim of the venture is to ramp up the conservation and restoration of wild nature across the world.
Rewilding Portugal launched today its annual report, where you can find out more about the rewilding approach, the team, the projects and so much more. Loose yourself in the beautiful photographs and amazing stories of 2019. See our year in review!
The discovery of a huge auroch engraving in northern Portugal’s Greater Côa Valley provides a historical perspective for contemporary rewilding efforts.
Complemented by other coexistence measures, the programme will reduce livestock predation by Iberian wolves, enabling the recovery of this endangered carnivore.
Within the scope of the project LIFE WolFlux, Rewilding Portugal registered the presence of roe deer in monitoring actions by setting up camera traps, in an action that is coordinated by the partner University of Aveiro
A range of conservation initiatives are focused on reinforcing a 120,000-hectare wildlife corridor between the Malcata mountain range and the Douro Valley.
The surveying work will bring a greater understanding of the distribution and abundance of roe deer populations in the area of Iberian wolf distribution south of the Douro river in Portugal, including in the Greater Côa Valley (part of the Western Iberia rewilding area). This is the first step in increasing the availability of natural prey for Iberian wolves.
