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.
iDiv-based PhD student Julia Rouet-Leduc has just completed a review of the benefits of different types of grazing. As part of the ongoing GrazeLIFE project, her work will inform the discussion about how to create a more supportive policy environment for these various grazing systems in Europe. In this blog, she walks us through some of the findings from her literature review.
Rewilding offers compelling solutions to our climate and biodiversity emergencies. Today’s charter release supports growing calls to scale up rewilding now.
This year the EU will take decisions that have far-reaching consequences for Europe’s people and nature. A new set of policy papers, released today, outlines why and how European politicians should prioritise nature restoration in the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2030.
Rewilding could be a global warming game changer, not only in Europe but also farther north. According to a recently published scientific article, Arctic rewilding with large herbivores has the potential to transform ecosystems and the global carbon budget.
The rewilding of European ecosystems can help to tackle both the current climate and biodiversity emergencies. In a policy brief published today, a coalition of five organisations call on the European Commission to prioritise nature recovery in the EU Biodiversity Strategy post-2020.
In today’s complex world, working with nature – rather than against it – can help us to overcome many challenges. A view which is embraced by 1% for the Planet, a charity which supports Rewilding Europe’s work, and which recently featured a longer version of the following article on their website.
In Rewilding Europe’s new Annual Review, Managing Director Frans Schepers outlines how scaling up rewilding can address some of our most pressing environmental, economic and social challenges.
