Rewilding nature in the Netherlands and Europe

Nature is more than just living plants and animals. Dispersing sand or overflowing rivers create habitats for species that thrive in these specific conditions. Wageningen scientists study opportunities for rewilding regions in the Netherlands and Europe. Wilder nature with swampy river banks led to breeding areas for different fish species in the Marker Wadden, which significantly enlivened the Markermeer.
