Restoring Italy’s Wild Heart is a short film that places a spotlight on the people in the Apennine Mountain range, who are doing extraordinary things to restore their native ecosystem and promote progressive coexistence within it. Only 2 hours from Rome but untouched by heavy industry this almost forgotten region is a reminder of how things once were, and is known as the country’s ‘Wild Heart’. It is also a sanctuary for the native species who once roamed throughout Italy… From the iconic Marsican Brown bear, the Apennine Wolf, Griffin vultures, Wild cats, scores of ungulates… From the biggest to the smallest – it is brimming with life.
