Rewilding Michael-ThornleyRewilding – restoring and protecting Mother Nature

‘Rewilding is large-scale conservation aimed at restoring and protecting natural processes and core wilderness areas, providing connectivity between such areas, and protecting or reintroducing apex predators and keystone species.”

Origin

” The word rewilding was coined by conservationist and activist Dave Foreman, one of the founders of the group Earth First! who went on to help establish both the Wildlands Project (now the Wildlands Network) and the Rewilding Institute.

The term first occurred in print in 1990 and was refined by conservation biologists Michael Soulé and Reed Noss in a paper published in 1998.  According to Soulé and Noss, rewilding is a conservation method based on “cores, corridors, and carnivores.”[ The concepts of cores, corridors, and carnivores were developed further in 1999. Dave Foreman subsequently wrote the first full-length exegesis of rewilding as a conservation strategy” – Wikipedia.

Rewilding Europe

Rewilding Europe is closest in scale and ambition to the Buffalo Commons in North America, and aims to:

  1. Rewild 1 million hectares of land in Europe by 2020, creating 10 magnificent wildlife and wilderness areas which may serve as inspirational showcases all across Europe.
  2. Help turn the problems caused by the on-going land abandonment into opportunities for man and nature alike, providing a viable business case for wild nature in Europe.
  3. Launch a new conservation vision for Europe, with wild nature and natural processes as key elements, where rewilding is applicable to any type of landscape or level of protection.

Their active sites are:

  • Western Iberia
  • Eastern Carpathians
  • Danube Delta
  • Southern Carpathians
  • Velebit

Rewilding is restoring the balance to Mother Earth.  The planet was not created simply for the indulgences of the human race, it is the home for all living things to live in ‘balance’, one which has been evolving over millennia.

We are responsible for tipping the scales to destruction, including our own demise if we continue on this downward spiral. However, we still have time albeit at the eleventh hour to right some of the wrongs and once again live in harmony with all that Mother Nature nurtures.
