Rewilding partners

A dedicated entity has established, called Rewilding Rhodopes Foundation, executing the strategy for the period 2015-19 in the rewilding area.

We are working closely with the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds (BSPB) and the Union of Hunters and Fishermen of Bulgaria. The Studen Kladenets hunting reserve is a local partner.

The LIFE Vultures project (LIFE Vultures – ‘’Conservation of Black and Griffon vultures in the cross-border Rhodope Mountains’’) is beeing implemented in the Rhodopes rewilding area. The project was developed by Rewilding Europe in partnership with Rewilding Rhodopes Foundation, Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds/Birdlife Bulgaria, WWF Greece, Vulture Conservation Foundation and Hellenic Ornithological Society/BirdLife Greece.

Other important actors in the area that we work with are private businesses, regional councils, B&B owners and wildlife tour providers.
