European Wilderness: only one per cent remains. Help us protect it.
Wild, beautiful, unfettered. Such was the nature on most parts of the European continent for thousands of years. Then it disappeared, being replaced with fields, roads and industrial zones. However, in some parts of Europe the Wilderness still exists. There are species which still can be seen by inhabitants of the European continent, like majestic European Bisons in Białowieża Forest (ancient woodland straddling the border between Poland and Belarus), huge bears in the mountains of Romania or Scandinavia, or predatory killer whales occupying the coasts of Norway.
Not only have some of the wildlife survived, but in some places it has begun returning back to its home, to locations where the land is no longer fertile or economical to use. Dozens of rare species have been returning to places they had been banished from. Some have been coming on their own, others with help of wildlife protection organisations.
Thousands of years has the sound of nature´s concert been heard, then drowned in the clamour of the industrial revolution, only to be heard again. Not too loud is its sound, though in many parts of Europe it is audible enough. European Wildlife organization wants to help protect the last places of real wildlife and also help endangered species return to places where, again, they have a chance to live and survive.
European wildlife is part of our heritage. We believe that with your help we can pass this heritage on to our children.
