Researching & Conserving Wildlife & Traditional Ecological Knowledge in the Rodopi Mountains

Wild Rodopi

Wild Rodopi

Wild Rodopi is an independent non-governmental organization (NGO) that conducts wildlife research and ethnoecological conservation projects in the Rodopi (Rhodope) Mountains. As well as biological recording and monitoring the exceptionally rich flora and fauna of the Rodopi (Rhodope) Mountains, we also work for the preservation of rural heritage in the region, acknowledging the crucial role that local customs, non-intensive agriculture and traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) have played in helping to shape the Rodopi (Rhodope) Mountains into one of the most important havens for biodiversity in Europe.
