In 2011 already, Adessium Foundation helped to start up Rewilding Europe as a new, innovative conservation initiative through a grant given through the WWF Netherlands.

For the period 2012-2014, Adessium Foundation specifically supported Rewilding Europe to build the enterprise component of Rewilding Europe. This grant has ended by 1 April 2014.

In 2014, Adessium Foundation approved a third grant to Rewilding Europe and in 2017, decided to continue supporting Rewilding Europe for another three year period. This ongoing support focuses on our rewilding activities in the Velebit Mountains (Croatia) and the Central Apennines (Italy), and also on the identification of new areas for rewilding.

The Adessium Foundation wants to contribute to a world in which people live in harmony with each other and with their environment. The Foundation is working to create a balanced society characterized by integrity, justice, and a balance between people and nature.
