The Origin of "Rewilding"

The word rewilding was coined by conservationist and activist Dave Foreman, and conservation biologists Michael Soule and Reed Noss. Dave founded the group Earth First! and went on to help establish both the Wildlands Project (now the Wildlands Network) with Soule and Noss, as well as the Rewilding Institute. -Wikipedia, Rewilding (Conservation Biology)
