Partnerships are key to us

We are fortunate and happy to already be working with a number of strong, active and really committed partners. Their firm support has taken us to where we are now and they are committed to remain engaged for years to come. They are all presented more in detail on a page each, reachable through the headlines on the left.

Below we have listed all our partnerships so far, within different categories. With all of these organizations we have signed formal contracts or partnership agreements that form the base of our cooperation:

  • Initiating partners: organizations that were part and parcel of the process that led to Rewilding Europe’s birth, and are actively engaged as partners in various ways –both strategic, technical and financial.
  • Funding partners: organizations or individuals that are providing crucially important funding support to our initiative for at least a two-year period.
  • Rewilding partners: organizations – other than the initiating partners – that are critical in achieving our rewilding objectives
  • Corporate partners: organizations – other than the initiating partners – that are critical in achieving our business & enterprise objectives
  • Local rewilding partners: organizations that we work with at the local level, and also those that our local teams work with.

However, Europe is large, our ambitions are high and the combined rewilding effort that we have taken on no less than daunting. We still need several more strong partnerships and at several different levels, in order to create the maximum result from our combined efforts.

Rewilding Europe would hereby like to invite all willing and able parties to join us in this almost epic effort. We warmly welcome you on board!

On location, Rewilding Europe is working in partnership with a series of carefully selected local partners, local communities, land owners, land managers, traditional land custodians, NGOs and other vitally important stakeholders in order to reach our goals. If you are a local stakeholder, active in or near one of our rewilding areas, we would really appreciate your input and engagement. Maybe you would like to join or to support the efforts of the local rewilding teams? Our method for teaming up with others is to find common ground and win-win solutions that will fit as many as possible, in order to make rewilding a reality on the ground.

Casa da Cisterna: expanding the business thanks to rewilding

Casa da Cisterna, a boutique bed & breakfast in the Western Iberia rewilding area was the first beneficiary of Rewilding Europe Capital (REC). Ana Berliner and António Monteiro, owners and managers of this fantastic Bed & Breakfast had the chance to expand their project thanks to the REC loan in 2014.

The Bed & Breakfast, located in the historic village of Castelo Rodrigo, one of the most well preserved rural villages in the region, opened to the public in 2004 with four bedrooms. Ten years later, due to great demand, Ana and António decided to expand the Bed & Breakfast and renovated a neighbouring house. Now they offer five more bedrooms than before, where tradition, elegant design and modern functionality come together beautifully, to provide guests with a unique experience.

“With the support of the Rewilding Europe Capital we could attain the co-finance needed for the expansion of Casa da Cisterna,” says Ana Berliner. “Besides infra-structure, it enables us to increase our energy efficiency.” Casa da Cisterna now has an ecological heating system – a heating pump – and solar panels for heating water, reducing the electricity consumption.

“In 2014, the occupation rate of visitors from Central Europe increased 35%,” Ana says. “Some visitors also came through the Rewilding Europe Travel Club. Rewilding Europe, with their different approaches – from funding to promotion – are great partners, supporting the growth of our business.”
