By enabling nature recovery, rewilding can play a game-changing role helping us to mitigate the scale and impact of global warming. The fifth in our ongoing series of impact stories takes a look at how European rewilding has evolved as a nature-based climate solution over the last 10 years.
Animals influence the carbon cycle in myriad ways. By enabling wildlife populations to recover in both number and diversity, rewilding could significantly reduce atmospheric carbon and move us beyond net zero.
World Rewilding Day is about celebrating rewilding and inspiring people and organisations across the globe to become involved in nature recovery. This year’s event calls for the scaling up of rewilding as a nature-based climate solution.
Rewilding Europe is working to accelerate the restoration of nature at landscape scale. Europe’s protected areas could play a pivotal role in the process.
On March 20, people across the planet will celebrate the first-ever #WorldRewildingDay, raising awareness of rewilding and our need for it. Join us on this special day and help us to spread the message that the time to heal nature is now. Are you #ReadyToRewild?
The new partnership recognises Rewilding Europe’s pivotal role in promoting rewilding as a mainstream approach to ecosystem restoration. As we embark on the UN Decade, it underlines the need to scale up rewilding now.
A new partnership between Rewilding Europe and Exodus Travels will support the rewilding of land in five wildlife corridors in the Central Apennines of Italy. This will lock up atmospheric carbon and aid the recovery of local wildlife populations.
The European Union will soon introduce legally binding restoration targets, backed up by a new “restoration law”. Rewilding is the best way for EU member states to meet their obligations.
Against the backdrop of rising global temperatures, biodiversity decline and the impact of COVID-19, the rewilding of Europe’s cities and surrounding areas can benefit people in myriad ways. The protection and enhancement of natural forests is key to delivering such benefits.
