Bison, bears, lynx and wolves are not in Tyrol anymore… However particularly lynx and wolves have a growing tendency to penetrate more and more to the west and reoccupied their historical araes … The philosophy of the European Wilderness Society (EWS) is to create condition that at least some of these animals will be able to came back as it already happening in many corners of Europe… To support this process EWS needs as many supporters as possible…
Been on holiday to the Tyrol on a number of occasions. Love the area but see few wild mammals. Would like to know that there were bison, bears, lynx and wolves in the forests even if I didn’t actually get to see them. Nature needs help more than ever. Rewilding has my full support
