Your Chance To Dig Deep Into Rewilding
Wild places on land and in the sea are the cornerstone of life on Earth, providing critical habitat for Earth’s many lifeforms. They produce the life-giving services upon which we all depend. These critical areas are also a necessary part of any solution to the climate crisis. Wildlands capture and store billions of tons of carbon. When we protect, restore, and rewild these areas, we help nature heal the planet!

Rewilding Helps Business
Teeccino is an herbal tea company that supports rewilding and local communities through their pioneering work to harvest (and use in their beverages) the abundant, wild ramon seed. They also support their local Mayan partners to regenerate ramon trees within its native forest habitat of Guatemala.
Rewilding Helps Nature Heal
Support rewilding efforts in your region by visiting one of the +130 Global Rewilding Alliance members in your area.
Right now, you can help our planet stabilize climate change through rewilding efforts. Protect essential wildlands, defend the homes of endangered and threatened species, and empower people to live well and live better with the natural world by supporting the Global Rewilding Alliance.
What is rewilding?
Rewilding is simple! It’s the process of helping nature heal by restoring the species and lands it needs to thrive. When the web of life is endowed with an abundance of species and ecological interactions, it can manage itself without human interference, creating the most large-scale and efficient carbon sequestration system possible.
How does rewilding help the climate?
Rewilding works with nature to efficiently and effectively capture and store carbon dioxide in vegetation, soils, and marine sediments. When we restore nature, we have the potential to remove over ⅓ of the excess carbon in the atmosphere causing global climate change, giving us more time to reduce emissions in other parts of the economy.
What are some examples of rewilding actions?
Reintroducing lost species, such as jaguars, bison, and sea otters so that they can fulfill their critical role in shaping forests, grasslands, wetlands, and coastal kelp forests.
Excluding damaging fishing from marine areas so fish, other wildlife, and plants can bounce back to a healthy abundance.
Removing dams, dikes, and other infrastructure from rivers and coastal areas so fish can again migrate and free-flowing water and its sediments can help animal and plant species to recolonize lost territory.
Who can join the Global Rewilding Alliance? Where do I sign up?
If you or your organization is involved in restoring wildlands and are interested in joining an international alliance committed to helping nature heal, please contact Magnus Sylvén to learn more about the Global Rewilding Alliance.
