a recently published report commissioned by rewilding europe has found that the brown bear population of europe, once on the brink of extinction, has doubled between 1970 and 2005. “conservation actually works,” said frans schepers, managing director of rewilding europe. “wildlife will fairly quickly bounce back if we allow it to. this report shows that.”

he added, “with continued and strong legal protection, an active boosting of existing wildlife populations or by reintroductions setting up new ones, and a growing wildlife based tourism combined with increased tolerance towards wildlife, more species will surely follow.”
