Rewilding Oder Delta

Rewilding Europe – an innovative idea and a strong network

The Oder Delta is part of Rewilding Europe’s rewilding network, which aims to implement the concept of rewilding throughout Europe. Rewilding Europe was founded in the Netherlands in 2011.

Rewilding Europe has set itself the goal of securing at least 1 million hectares of land for rewilding in ten areas across Europe. There are already rewilding areas in Portugal, Sweden, Bulgaria, Italy, Croatia, Scotland, Spain, Sweden and Romania as well as the cross-border Danube Delta area shared by Romania, Moldova and Ukraine. The Oder Delta became the eighth rewilding area in 2015.
