Species Return In A "Spectacular" Way To Europe

The latest Return of European Wildlife survey shows that the animals are one of 50 extended species tracked. From black-headed sea turtles and Eurasian otters to humpback whales and wolffish, numerous species that once struggled have achieved "spectacular" recoveries. 


On September 27, Rewilding Europe published a brand-new wildlife report covering Europe that included the most recent and cutting-edge opportunities and challenges. Experts from the Zoological Society of London, Birdlife International, and the Ornithology Council Europe have contributed to this peer-reviewed, science-based evaluation of returned European wildlife.


The mission of Bring Back the Wildlife of Europe is to aid in the return of wildlife by allowing it to do so naturally or by reintroducing animals to places where they are insufficiently familiar and cannot be restored. Additionally, given the rate of biodiversity destruction and unprecedented optimism, prioritizing wildlife recovery has become even more crucial. 


Much of Europe's wildlife is still in danger. Approximately one in five animal species and one in close to eight bird species still reside on the continent and face extinction.

However, the report points to a 'reason for optimism' by analyzing many species that have made impressive returns.


Previously, the continent was home to gray wolves. However, because of human encroachment on their habitat and killing, they practically vanished in the 20th century. As a result, the population increased by 1,800% to 17,000 during the 1970s. Another animal making a comeback due to these initiatives is the brown bear. The population has grown by 44% since 1960.


The first report on the return of wildlife, released in 2013 to learn more about and promote a future return to wildlife in Europe, discusses the return of wild animals. Over the past 40 to 50 years, a few species of birds and mammals have demonstrated a comeback. 


This latest Return of Wildlife study was made possible thanks to funding from Arcadia, a Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin-founded nonprofit, WWF Netherlands, and the Netherlands ZIP Code Lottery. 


Many people and other animals believe that some creatures, including bears and wolves, pose a threat. Since ancient times, they have been mentioned in local legends about shepherds and sheep, which have become a part of folklore.


However, in the twenty-first century, the advantages of reintroduction greatly exceed the risks. Entire ecosystems benefit from regenerating and protecting fragile species, often in subtle ways.


"For instance, gray wolves from the Biaowiea Primary Forest in Poland changed the distribution of web-surfing species, such as deer and wild boar, by driving them out of particular places."
