The Wildlife Restoration Project
We'll specifically be supporting a Mossy Earth project aiming to restore devastating damage caused by the wildfires in Portugal in 2017. One of these areas was Douro National Park which saw 120,000 hectares burn. This beautiful landscape was left charred, barren and lifeless.
The fire also saw 65 people killed; the worst loss of life in Portugal this century.
It took more than 150 firefighters to get the fire under control, involving 52 vehicles, 2 helicopters and a plane. The fire destroyed a beautiful wilderness that was home to many wild animals, including wild horses, bobcats, vultures and wolves.
The rewilding project aims to build core forest to create a nucleus for life. Take a look at this video update from Mossy Earth to learn more...
