Rewilding On The Danube: They Flooded A Forest!
It never gets old discovering new examples of rewilding efforts from around the world. The YouTube algorithm plies me with suggested content that suits my interests with eerie precision. Today it suggested the following video by Mossy Earth about a rewilding project designed to bring back healthy wetlands along the Danube to entice several species to do their thing in the newly restored area.
Costing 40,000 Euros, covering 3,000 hectares, and supported with a lot of work by conservation biologists and volunteers, the project has been deemed a success. Watch the video and tell us what you think about this rewilding project in the comments below!
