Science Reporter Rebecca Morelle published an interesting story today on the BBC News Science and Environment page. A joint report by the Zoological Society of London, BirdLife International, and the European Bird Census Council finds that many of Europe’s most endangered mammals and birds have actually increased in population and distribution in recent decades. The result points to something conservationists have known all along: with space and some degree of isolation from humans, wildlife will come back. This optimism is a main thrust behind the Rewilding Europe initiative, who commissioned the analysis. Check it out for some measured good news and a few great photographs.
