There are many beautiful natural areas and species in Europe. Among them are the wolf, the lynx, the bear and the loggerhead turtle. They are all protected under the EU Birds and Habitats Directive but major threats still exist.
Thanks to strong protection the wolf and the lynx are back from the brink of extinction in Europe but they are still at risk. Our leaders need to make sure that Europe’s wild nature is given the space and protection it needs to thrive safely.
