Humans have an ethical obligation to protect and restore wild Nature. It is not enough to preserve remaining pieces of wild Earth, but is also necessary to restore big wild connected areas -- complete with top predators, like wolves and great cats and sharks, who keep ecosystems bountiful and beautiful.

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.
