From Open Risk Manual


Rewilding is the mass restoration of ecosystems that have been damaged by human activity. [1]

It denotes more than conservation, which focuses on saving specific species through dedicated human intervention. Rewilding refers to setting aside large areas for the natural world to regenerate in on its own terms.

Rewilding sometimes requires the reintroduction of key species that have been driven extinct in a particular region, such as beavers, wolves, or large herbivores, who help shape entire ecosystems.

Rewilding can help combat Climate Change by removing more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through healthy natural processes such as natural woodland regeneration. It also helps prevent species extinction and Biodiversity Risk by creating nature-rich habitats that allow wildlife to adapt to climate change and migrate as warming intensifies.
