Bookmarked Rewilding: four tips to let nature thrive (The Conversation)

By studying where rewilding has worked well around the world, we’ve worked out the dos and don’ts.

Sophie Wynne-Jones, Ian Convery and Steve Carver publishedย a set of guiding principlesย which specify what rewilding should involve and how it should be done.

  1. Donโ€™t (always) start with wolves
  2. Do reconnect people with nature
  3. Donโ€™t alienate rural communities
  4. Do think about the future

In addition to this, Future Tense provide a two part series (one and two) exploring the debate about dingos and the impact of forests in Europe. While Louise Johns explores the complexities associated with re-introducing bison in North America

  2. Do reconnect people with learning
  3. Donโ€™t alienate educational systems and bodies
  4. Do think about the future
