Natural processes shape our world. These endless interactions between plants, animals and the elements weave the great web of life. Restoring natural processes is the key to rewilding. Helping woodlands regenerate and our seas recover, letting rivers meander, connecting up habitats to help wildlife move and adapt.
Nature is diverse, dynamic, unpredictable and complex so there’s no one-size-fits-all route map to rewilding. It’s about taking a holistic approach that lets nature lead the way as much as possible – to grow, evolve and change on its own terms.
Taking actions that support life and restore life. That’s how to start rewilding.
