Rewilding European Shorelines and Beyond

We promote the adaptation of the innovative conservation approach of 'rewilding' as a nature-based solution to restore Europe's intertidal areas.

Where We Work

The REWRITE project's 10 demonstrators cover a range of climates and represent important coastal areas worldwide.
They help us study how climate and human activity affect intertidal soft sediment (ISS) seascapes, enhancing our understanding of these ecosystems and their response to environmental changes.

We are excited to lead the REWRITE project and embark on this innovative journey to restore and rewild European coastal zones. By bridging scientific knowledge and societal engagement, we aim to create a sustainable future where nature thrives, contributing to climate resilience and biodiversity support.
