Welcome to the green heart of Europe!
Welcome - Добре дошли – Üdvözöljük - Vitajte - Bine ați venit - Ласкаво просимо!
We believe that conservation of life on earth is possible by protecting the most exceptional ecosystems and habitats. Places that are particularly rich in biodiversity. Places with unique animals and plants. Places like no other - from the Danube River Basin to the Carpathian Mountains, we call our region the Green Heart of Europe.
It includes many of Europe’s most spectacular remaining wilderness areas and some of the largest remaining areas of virgin and natural forests. They are home to two-thirds of the European populations of bears, lynx and wolves.
The region boasts most of Europe’s last remaining intact rivers and wetlands, including the Danube Delta. The Danube shelters the sturgeons that survived the end of the dinosaurs but now are on the edge of extinction.
For thousands of years this natural landscape has been shaped by its people and is blessed with an incomparable wealth of history and culture. WWF Central and Eastern Europe - our great team from over seven nationalities and offices in five countries - thrives to ensure that future generations will also enjoy this incredible legacy and live in harmony with nature.
