NTG Joined the European Rewilding Network

New Thracian Gold joined the European Rewilding Network (ERN) officially launched during WILD10, the World Wilderness Congress in October in Salamanca, Spain. The ERN aim is to build a living network of many rewilding initiatives supporting rewilding in Europe as a conservation tool and as something to learn from and get inspired by.

The start of the European Rewilding Network was announced in July and twenty rewilding initiatives from thirteen countries joined so far: from Scotland to Romania and from Latvia to Spain. The total extension of areas in the Network already exceeds 633,000 hectares, this excludes the Rewilding Europe areas that cover another 2,180,000 hectares. The online database including an outline of the members of the Network became publicly accessible during WILD10.

Every initiative that already joined the Network has submitted information about what kind of experience they would like to share and gain with other members. In the coming weeks, ERN will align the exchange of information between the members of the Network. In the near future, possibilities for arranging training opportunities, learning seminars and experience-sharing visits will be investigated.

On October 5th, the Thracian Mountains (Bulgaria) were announced as a nominated area within Rewilding Europe during WILD 10 and will hopefully soon become part of the Rewillding Europe initiative. The Thracian Mountains are the area of the Eastern Rhodopes where the NTG project has been actively working since 2009.
