The simplest solutions are often the best:

Did you know that a simple change in fishing gear can save Atlantic's sharks?! Changing the type of bait; using nylon leaders, which attach fishing lines to hooks, allowing sharks to break free; and modifying the shape of hooks would all have a positive impact on reducing shark by-catch.

Doing great things - our partners in the news

Rewilding Europe

Much has been happening with our partner initiative, Rewilding Europe, recently. Their latest newsletter is literally packed full.

Wolves are knocking at Dutch doors, Laurentien van Oranje-Nassau and Dr. Claude Martin have become Special Advisors, a wildlife recovery programme is being developed, permissions sought for introduction of deer, cattle and horse; lots and lots of media coverage and a movie, ready to be made.
Read all about it here.

WWF Romania Forest Success

Our partners at WWF Romania have been lobbying hard to save Romania's virgin forests, with great success!

The result: Ministerial commitment to protect ALL of Romania's virgin forests, which equates to 65% of Europe's virgin forests outside Russia!

More good news for forests: The forest in the River Änok Delta, part of the Laponia World Heritage site, Sweden, will also not be cut down thanks to great protests recently!

But we need to do more:

A shocking 10,000 dead songbirds were recently seized from a Romanian truck en route to Italian restaurants where it is sold as a delicacy. Read more here.
