On 14 July, WILD’s President Vance Martin will speak at the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum Auditorium (Golden, Colorado) as part of a Wild Wonders of Europe event. Vance will speak about the phenomenal rewildling that is occurring in Europe, the importance of wilderness protection, Nature Needs Half and the planning underway for the next World Wilderness Congress. This is an incredibly unique opportunity to hear first hand from Vance about the state of wild-nature in Europe, as he has just returned from an intensive series of meetings with our European colleagues.
Other speakers for the evening include Staffan Widstrand, Executive Director of Wild Wonders of Europe and Susan Bruce, US Director of Wild Wonders of Europe.
The Wild Wonders of Europe initiative focuses on sharing the natural wonders of the continent with Europeans and the rest of the world. How are they doing it? By assigning 69 of the continent’s most talented and committed nature photographers on a great Quest, to conduct 125 photographic missions across 48 European countries. After more than 1100 days in the field we created an archive of almost 200,000 breathtaking images and hours of high-quality video footage.
It is the most up-to-date, cohesive visual documentation of nature in Europe. And, it is the largest photography-based conservation communication initiative in the World.
Join us on the 14th to learn more about this exciting initiative and wild-nature in Europe. Details –
