Rewilding Week: Focus on Bears and Bison

Posted by Cain Blythe - CEnv MIEMA MCIEEM MSc BSc (Hons) on 27/11/2015

Cain Blythe and Daniel Allen cover two revealing articles for Geographical magazine as part of Rewilding Week:

Bear Necessities: http://geographical.co.uk/nature/wildlife/item/1389-bear-necessities

Fewer than 50 Marsican brown bears roam the Apennine Mountains of central Italy. Daniel Allen and Cain Blythe investigate whether new protection measures can bring Italy’s largest carnivore back from the edge.

Running Wild: http://geographical.co.uk/nature/wildlife/item/1391-running-wild

More Europeans than ever before are migrating from countryside to city and rewilding initiatives – such as the re-introduction of European bison into Romania’s Tarcu Mountains – may offer a better mix of ecology and economy for the land left behind.
