Trail to Salamanca
"Now, walking the long Trail to Salamanca through the Great Mountain Corridor that links the Alps, Grand Massif, Pyrenees and Cantabrian Range, I'm increasingly aware of its iconic presence as one of the most admired examples of European wildlife. Seeing it is a relative rarity and cause for celebration."

Featured WILD10 ambassador
Juan Luis Arsuaga: Paleontologist, Director of Human Evolution & Behavior Center (UCM)

"It is a serious mistake to believe that the future lies in the past. We can not retrace time and go back to pre-History. Instead, it is about building a better world. In the end, we all know what that better world looks like, and there is nothing we human beings cannot achieve, if we all dream together. This is the positive message that we will share at WILD10!"

Wildlife needs you!

Mali Elephants Carlton Ward

Wildlife is the soul of wild nature- animals "animate" the lands and seas. However, there are many situations throughout the world that threaten these wonderful animals. The poaching crisis escalates daily. Wars take their toll on wildlife, but some solutions beat the odds- such as the desert elephants of Mali 

Fishing Cat Josh Lewis, Morgan Heim and The Fishing Cat Research and Conservation Project

 Other species are struggling at the edge of extinction...the Iberian Lynx, Blue-fin tuna, the elusive fishing cat, various primates and more. Yet some species making a comeback across Europe and throughout the world; wolves are spreading, the white-tailed sea eagle is breeding well, bison are populating the woods & fields, wild turkey roam the landscapes, and some animals are even adapting to cities! There are many challenges, and there are many solutions. 


The WILD10 program is "animated" with these issues and stories, the struggles to survive, and the people on the front lines working to protect wildlife. Join us at WILD10 to hear their stories and help them by getting involved!

 WILD10 Delegates: Do you live or work in a WILD place?


Europe is becoming a wilder place, and that's why WILD10 will convene there. Even on the world's most densely populated continent, wild nature & human society can have a new relationship. This idea of a new, wilder, reborn Europe can create a true feeling of European identity and it can start a new global movement for nature and wilderness. Wilderness is an old resource for a new and wilder world!


The locations in this GeoStory are just a few examples of the many wild places found throughout the world.



WILD Delegates: we want to know...do you live or work in/nearby a WILD place? Show us through images, video, audio, text and mapping location!
