About us

The restoration of ecosystems and the need to connect with nature and wildlife is an emerging movement. We are at a historic moment for nature conservation and the support for an innovative nature-based economy.

Spanish society is changing towards a more positive attitude towards nature, wildlife and forests. We want to be part of this movement that is developing a new approach to conservation in Europe and that, in turn, opens up new opportunities and challenges for nature and people.

On March 10th of 2020 Fundación Española de Renaturalización, also known as Rewilding Spain, was formally established as a non-profit entity duly registered in the National Registry of Foundations. This was achieved thanks to the free legal support from MAIO law firm.

Our foundation was born with the main purpose of promoting the recovery of nature and wildlife in Spain, as well as the conservation of wild landscapes based on natural processes and for the benefit of society. To achieve this goal, a Board of Trustees with experience in the Spanish context has been set up, and a work program adapted to the situation of conservation and the rural environment in Spain is being developed.
