Where can you rewild?

Nature recovery is vital across land and at sea. Our land has been deforested, over-grazed, burned and degraded. Our seas have been overfished, dredged and polluted. Land and sea are inextricably connected: salmon need healthy rivers to spawn, nutrients from the sea enrich our soils, kelp forests absorb tons of carbon. 

Everything is connected. Our urban spaces, our gardens and parks, are all part of the bigger picture. The more we can connect up nature-rich areas, and get natural processes working, the stronger our life support system will be.

Full rewilding may not happen everywhere but we can take a rewilding approach anywhere.
