Become a Rewilder

How do you get involved in rewilding?

What does it mean to be a rewilder?

Good news: Everyone can be a rewilder!

You do not need to have a background in ecology, you can contribute as a lawyer, communicator, tourist operator, artist or from many other sectors.

If you are a conservationist, you do not need to work in an organisation or a job position that is labelled as “rewilding” organisation. If you are applying the rewilding mindset and the rewilding principles, if you are working in restoring ecological processes in order to reduce human management  – then you are working in rewilding.

Find below some practical tools to draw inspiration from.
