Thursday 8pm Europe’s New Wild - Documentary
Just outside Europe’s most iconic cities, another Europe is calling. Europe’s New Wild takes us on a journey to reveal the spectacular resurgence of nature across Europe’s most varied and breathtaking landscapes. See how dedicated re-wilding teams are on a mission to help bring back species from the brink and restore Europe’s wild nature.
THE LAND OF THE SNOW AND ICE - Lapland, northern Europe’s unique wilderness, is home to the Sámi people, iconic wildlife and a time-honored natural spectacle.
Lapland is one of Northern Europe’s wildest landscapes. It is a unique blend of wild nature and cultural heritage. Here old-growth forests, mountains, glaciers, free-flowing rivers and extensive wetlands co-exist with the indigenous Sami community since millennia. There is no other place in continental Europe with such vast, uninhabited, road-less and wild landscapes as Swedish Lapland. But this seemingly untouched wilderness faces threats – rivers have been dammed, old-growth forest logged and peatlands drained.
Rewilding Sweden is on a mission to protect and restore these lost habitats. Seeking collaboration to make sure both people and nature are benefitting sustainably from wildlife comeback.
