27.01.2012 - One of the key objectives of the Transylvanian Wildlife Project is to actively assist those wishing to help our campaign to protect the eastern Carpathian virgin forests and wildlife. So when 5 students from Cumbria University studying wildlife media approached us for our help, we were more than willing to offer our support. We were even more compelled to help when we heard that Daniel Sencier, one of the students on the May expedition recently beat prostate cancer, and will be using this event to raise funds and awareness for the Prostate Cancer Charity. The team will be arriving under the banner of "Expedition Romania" and will be honing their media techniques in Romania as part of their studies. We also hope to forge greater links with Cumbria University to assist us with analysing our data from field work activities.


October 1st 2011 - The Transylvanian Wildlife Project is now officially registered as a Romanian Registered Non-Profit Association! A big thank you to Balint Botond the TWP Romanian branch secretary who has been running around from one department to another to facilitate our registration. As a recognised and registered NGO we are now able to take financial donations. This is desperately needed to advance our work, especially the purchase of much needed camera traps. We are also seeking to buy a high definition camcorder, and DSLR with telephoto lens for TWP use when recording sightings. You will find the donate button at the top right hand side of each page of the TWP site. Thank you all in advance for your generosity!


September 9th - After eight months of planning the TWP has commenced work on a film project with National Geographic. We have been in fabulous company with cameraman Shane Moore, who has worked on many infamous projects such as  'Planet Earth' with David Attenborough (BBC); 'Deadliest Catch' (Discovery); and 'Survival with Ray Mears'. This documentary will go a long way in highlighting the uniqueness of the flora and fauna of the Carpathian region. Continue....
