Nature is amazing! When left to manage itself, natural processes begin to function more effectively. Such processes include natural grazing, the roles of predators and scavengers and natural flooding.
Let’s be optimistic! After years of decline, the European populations of some wildlife species are increasing. Such species include the beaver, elk, ibex, whooper swan and white-tailed eagle. Even wolves are starting to venture more widely.
There are economic opportunities in rewilding. The increasing global popularity of nature-based tourism demonstrates this potential. Helping nature heal can lead to prosperous local economies.
