Rewilding Europe is a non-profit organization based in the Netherlands, working to create rewilded landscapes in different regions across Europe. Implementing rewilding means letting nature reclaim areas, so that natural processes shape land and sea, repair damaged ecosystems and restore degraded landscapes. Through rewilding, the biological cycles of wild flora and fauna create wilder and more biodiverse habitats.

Rewilding Europe supports the projects of Bear Smart Community Genzana, Bear Smart Community Alto Molise and Bear Smart Community Roveto Valley-Ernici.

Rewilding Apennines is an organization which develops and implements rewilding projects designed to restore natural processes and regenerate the precious ecosystems of the central Apennines. In close cooperation with Rewilding Europe, it works to achieve peaceful human-wildlife coexistence and promotes sustainable and nature-focused business activities that benefit both people and ecosystems. The Marsican brown bear – authentic symbol of the central Apennines and a keystone species – inspires most of the association’s activities, especially those designed to mitigate human-bear conflicts and encourage the expansion of the species into areas where it can thrive.

Rewilding Europe supports the projects of Bear Smart Community Genzana, Bear Smart Community Alto Molise and Bear Smart Community Roveto Valley-Ernici.

Fondation Segré sponsorizza il progetto di Comunità a Misura d’Orso Marsicano.

Fondation Segré was originally established with a general philanthropic purpose: to support humanitarian, scientific, educational, artistic and environmental projects. Subsequently, the conservation of nature and biodiversity emerged as its predominant concern. Fondation Segré is committed to protecting our planet by actively conserving threatened species and their habitat and restoring degraded ecosystems. The Foundation may directly undertake conservation projects, or alternatively, offer financial support to partner organizations.

Fondation Segré supports the projects of Marsican Bear Smart Communities.

Io non ho paura del lupo (I’m Not Scared of the Wolf) works to guarantee a secure future for the wolf and its habitat, protecting biodiversity. The association pursues this objective by promoting human-wolf coexistence, encouraging stakeholders to be more accepting of the species, monitoring the presence of wolves in particular areas and offering ways of protecting livestock by preventing wolf raids. At the same time, it actively pushes back against the distorted and biased information that the media publishes about this large carnivore.

Iononhopauradellupo is a partner affiliated with Salviamo l’Orso.

Patagonia funds only environmental work. We are most interested in making grants to organizations that identify and work on the root causes of problems and that approach issues with a commitment to long-term change. Because we believe that the most direct path to real change is through building grassroots momentum, our funding focuses on organizations that create a strong base of citizen support. We support small, grassroots, activist organizations with provocative direct-action agendas, working on multi-pronged campaigns to preserve and protect our environment.

It is amazing what Patagonia is able to do for the environment thanks to just 1% of their year income. Let’s imagine what a change would happen if other businesses in the world would do the same!

Patagonia sponsored our projects Safe roads for bears, Caring for dogs saves the bears, The bear’s honey and Wildlife corridors.
