REWILDING IS

ALREADY WORKING BOTH AMBITIOUS & REALISTIC PRACTICAL HOPE ANCHORED IN SCIENCE MOBILISING THE POWER OF NATURE

We’re Turning the Tide for Nature, Climate & People.Restoring Functional Nature for All.

NATURE’S HEALING POWER UNLEASHED:

SECURING A STABLE & HOPEFUL FUTURE

The Global Rewilding Alliance is a worldwide organisation working with rewilders on every continent to help nature heal itself and secure a thriving future for people, nature and planet.

By initiating the comeback of numerous wildlife species and working hand-in-hand with indigenous and local communities, rewilding is restoring healthy ecosystems. These functional ecosystems capture vast amounts of carbon, provide fresh air and clean water, and stabilise extreme weather - they are vital to our prosperity, survival, and security.

Rewilding provides practical hope based on real, positive action.

Nature possesses the incredible ability to rebound, but it does need our help! Organisations, environmental scientists, policymakers, businesses and citizens, this is our call to unite to create a rich, diverse, resilient world.

THE GLOBAL REWILDING MOVEMENT: COLLECTIVE IMPACT REPORT

World's first attempt to summarise the collective impact of the global rewilding movement

This visually stunning, highly accessible 50-page report integrates many great stories, ideas and resources from across the movement. It is intended as a resource for the whole rewilding movement.

With this hugely rewarding read, we are showing that rewilding truly is a global movement now and that rewilders are organised, innovative, evidence-based, persistent, and pragmatic people - they are putting Hope Into Action.

We warmly invite you to give yourself time to read the many inspiring stories that we share here - you will be richly rewarded.

WORLD REWILDING DAY 2024

March 20th was World Rewilding Day, an oppportunity spread the important message of #HopeIntoAction, and to join rewilders around the globe on a journey of discovery; a journey to embrace hope and take action to help nature's resilient comeback, and to celebrate the far-reaching and often unforeseen benefits that arise when we partner with nature!

As well as reading the Collective Impact Report (released on World Rewilding Day),  you can discover more about the day itself on our archive page, read about the impact in our Reflections on World Rewilding Day blog post and our World Rewilding Day Impact Report.

THE GLOBAL REWILDING ALLIANCE, AS SEEN IN...

Our research is taking the world by storm, making it clear that we can stabilise the climate and create positive change in which both people and nature thrive. Rewilding is the powerful, proactive, and inspiring solution we all need.

This may be the most important scientific study I’ve ever read

WE ARE THE GLOBAL REWILDING ALLIANCE

Together our alliance partners are influencing the rewilding of approaching 2 million square kilometers of land and seas.
That’s the size of the UK, Italy, Switzerland and South Korea combined together!

WE HAVE 2 GOALS

global rewilding icon

Mainstreaming rewilding

We are dedicated to translating science into policy and best practice globally. Our goal is for everyone, everywhere, to recognize rewilding as a beautiful, inspiring, hopeful, and most importantly proactive proven solution.

global movement icon

We are building a global movement

Restoring nature’s balance is only possible when supported by people. The Global Rewilding Alliance is a driving force, mobilizing the wordwide rewilding community and uniting people to restore Earth's wild spaces, stabilise the climate, combat mass extinctions, and mitigate the risk of future pandemics.

AND 4 WAYS TO MAKE THEM HAPPEN

1

We Gather Evidence

Safeguarding biodiversity is an essential act to sustain life as we know it. We advance the rewilding movement with world-class science, evidence, and ideas proving that rewilding needs to be at the centre of environmental policy and action.

2

We Advocate For Change

Based on our strong scientific evidence and increased public support, we influence policy and call for the restoration of wildlife populations to be included as a key nature-based solution.

4

We Inspire Communities

We raise awareness on rewilding and share practical hope for everyone. We invite people everywhere to understand rewilding and to participate in this inspiring movement.

3

We Accelerate Rewilders’ Journeys

We build partnerships with organisations and local communities to create the movement for rewilding and ecological restoration. We support our Alliance Partners by helping them connect to one another, learn from each other and work together towards shared goals.

Which feeds back into the first stage, gathering evidence to advance the rewilding movement. And so the cycle continues.

Restoring wildlife and whole ecosystems to reinstate the life-supporting functions of nature. This has the potential to draw down vast amounts of carbon, stabilise the climate and create the better future we all dream of.
