Conservation has received a boost on the feminine side today as women-only technical clothing brand, Wild Roses (International) AG has signed up to join the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA). Following discussions at OutDoor in Friedrichshafen last month, Wild Roses has already shown excitement and enthusiasm for their new membership, suggesting further fundraising events they wish to undertake for the growing organisation.

President of EOCA and Managing Director of Patagonia Europe, Holger Bismann welcomed Wild Roses saying, “We are thrilled to add such an inspiring and well known brand to our team. To come to us immediately with ideas for how they would like to raise some more money for our projects demonstrates real commitment to conservation, and we very much look forward to working with them in the future.”

Brand Manager Johanna Rastner said ‘We appreciate the great projects supported by EOCA and look forward to an exciting collaboration. Wild Roses has a long tradition of supporting projects dealing with nature and the environment. Our company supports eight brand ambassadors who are involved in various fields including project managers of Mountain Wilderness, mountain guides, biologists and mountain athletes”.

Wild Roses is the 11th new member to join up this year, bringing the current total number of members to 69.

"Support from The North Face Explore Fund via EOCA has completely transformed our Project. We have hired two new staff members, expanded our volunteer programme, supported the regeneration of tens of thousands of native trees, hosted new primary schools and restored an upland peat bog. Over the past 12 months we have made impressive progress towards our long-term goal of restoring 630 hectares of wild native woodland in the Lake District National Park. Support from EOCA has raised our ambition. We now have our sights set on even larger scale restoration of native woodlands and other wildlife habitats. "
