We want rewilding to revitalise rural communities through local nature-based economies that can be sustained
Rewilding has the potential to stimulate a nature-based economy, which would provide new and exciting jobs to help young people stay in their communities, learn new skills, raise their families and sustain the area's vitality.
Rewilding relies on people making a collective decision to explore an alternative future for the land. Those who own and derive their income from the land are central to making this decision.
Establishing rewilding areas, and striving to make these world-class destinations for nature tourism, has the potential to bring significant economic benefits through tourism alone. Most of these benefits, including jobs and income, would be felt and shared locally.
