Welcome to the FREE Nature website, the Foundation for Restoring European Ecosystems. FREE Nature restores natural areas in which nature is able to form itself. Natural processes shape these new wildernesses. Large mammalian species, such as beavers, wild horses and bovines, European bison and wolves, are part of this nature. People can freely enjoy this natural richness. FREE Nature works together with both clients and partners on the entire route from vision forming to practical management of wild herds. Involving local people is our second nature.
