Based on the enthusiastic response to our Pyrenees to Carpathians natural green corridor project, our Society decided to develop the idea further into a Pan European Green Corridor Network. We believe that such a network can be set up for the implementation and promotion of wilderness and wildlife preservation across the continent..
This year we will all meet in the National Park Hohe Tauern in Mittersill, Austria and follow up on the issues, challenges and proposals of identifying, designating, managing and promoting wilderness in Europe. More than 30 Speakers and 100 delegates have already signed up to attend the event. We have opened a call for areas wishing to host the European Wilderness Academy Days 2015.
Just a few days after the launch of our wilderness questionnaire the first results are already available. Managers of the potential wilderness areas responded and provided data. Two Ukrainian wilderness areas in NP Vizhnitsky and NP Zacharovanij kraj provided data for almost 3 500 ha of potential wilderness in the wild Carpathians Mountains.

1972 born Austrian Gudrun spent her whole childhood and youth growing up in the Austrian Alps. The big forest right behind her parent’s house was her playground As a wildlife expert with a special focus on wolves and as a trained biologist, she will contribute to our newest projects, especially the Pan European Green Corridor Network and the Wolf Festival scheduled in spring 2015.
Since the beautiful movie “How Wolves change the flow of rivers” which explains the importance of large carnivors for our nature, we know what the cascading effects are. But how far does this cascading effects go, and is it true for more animals that are in danger of survival?
By allocating 5 minutes of your time, you can now greatly help Europe’s wilderness. If you complete the questionnaire, you will contribute to improving the identification, protection and promotion of our last great places of wilderness and aid us in setting up the European Wilderness Preservation System. The results of this survey will be presented.
