The appearance of small groups of Eurasian beavers (Castor fiber) in various areas of the Italian territory has attracted the attention of the scientific community. The return of this species after more than five hundred years of absence and its ability to change the landscape highlights the potential for coexistence with a wild animal species relatively unknown in Italy.
The griffon vulture is an iconic and ecologically important species in the Central Apennines of Italy. Aided by new funding, the local rewilding team are working hard to support population growth.
Funding from Fondation Ensemble will support the comeback of griffon vultures, Apennine chamois and white-clawed crayfish in the Central Apennines rewilding landscape. This contributes to the area’s overall rewilding vision and is good news for nature and people.
Rewilding Apennines is currently looking for a Financial and Administration Officer (M/F; min. 0,70 fte) based at its home office located in the Central Apennines, Italy.
The Central Apennines are known for their diverse habitats and rich biodiversity, but despite this, there are places where the disappearance of certain species does not allow the ecosystem to manifest its full potential. The Apennine chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica ornata) is one of these key species.
We are launching a new initiative aiming at increasing the population size of scavenging birds in the Central Apennines.
A concrete contribution to the rewilding: the multisensorial experience of Elena in the Central Apennines
Through volunteering and internship programs, Rewilding Apennines gives the opportunity to many young people to have professional and life experiences in direct contact with nature. This is Elena Viti’s story.
