The 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP 28, kicks off today. The need to slash anthropogenic carbon emissions is urgent, yet delegates should also bear in mind that nature can and must play an essential role in fixing our climate.

Launched at the conclusion of a high-level gathering in Vienna, the European Rewilding Coalition brings together Europe’s leading practical rewilding organisations. By working together, the coalition membership will accelerate landscape-scale rewilding across the continent.
Rewilding Europe has signed a major financial partnership with the Ecological Restoration Fund. The funding will support and scale up practical rewilding and enhance the work of the European Wildlife Comeback Fund, thereby helping to realise the ambitions set out in our “Strategy 2030”.
Restoring the health and functionality of wild nature offers us a game-changing opportunity to address our biodiversity and climate emergencies at the same time. The UN’s biodiversity and climate-related plans and agreements should reflect this by working synergistically to maximise support for rewilding.
Peatland rewilding can mitigate climate change and benefit people and nature in myriad other ways. A new grant from the US-based Grantham Foundation will see Rewilding Europe work to fund landscape-scale peatland rewilding through the sale of nature-based carbon credits.
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?
