We visit three of Europe’s newest and largest habitat restoration schemes with the Endangered Landscape Programme, and find out their plans for restoring biodiversity and the benefits it brings to people in some of the most exciting conservation programmes on the continent.

Want to hear more from Georgina Mayhew who works at the Endangered Landscapes Programme? She participated in a live Q&A about how we can make space for nature at 2pm on Saturday 3 April.

Endangered Landscapes Programme

The Endangered Landscapes Programme provides inspiration for a future in which biodiversity and ecosystem processes are restored to Europe’s degraded lands, establishing resilient, more self-sustaining ecosystems. Working in partnership with local communities, the programme supports the creation of large, connected landscapes that allow species to adapt to environmental stresses and promote the development of local economies and sustainable livelihoods.
