Finance and support

Until 2010 the Tauros Programme was completely privately financed by the Taurus foundation itself. Since than financial support has been given by:

  • the province of Limburg (via ArkNature) for reintroduction of the 'Oeros' in the Kempen~Broek Area;
  • Rewilding Europe for starting the Tauros Programme in de RE-areas Faia Brava and Velebit with grants from the Swedish Postcode lottery, the Dutch Postcode lottery, The Liberty Wildlife fund;
  • The province of Gelderland (FoodValley Programma): a grant for conducting scientific research by Wageningen University;
  • In 2014 the Taurus foundation and Wageningen University were granted a European research budget of EUR 240.000 as part of the EGS-ABG programme. 

Apart from this, the Tauros Programme still needs additional funding. If you might be interested in the possibilities of supporting the Tauros Programma, please let us know (by sending an email to: We offer a number of different possibilities.
