About the author


The Rewilding Institute (TRI) mission is to explore and share tactics and strategies to advance continental-scale conservation and restoration in North America and beyond. We focus on the need for large carnivores and protected wildways for their movement; and we offer a bold, scientifically credible, practically achievable, and hopeful vision for the future of wild Nature and human civilization on planet Earth.


Puma Recovery for Eastern Wildways, Part 1

By Rewilding / June 25, 2018

A Call to Action From Cougar Rewilding Foundation, The Rewilding Institute, Wildlands Network, and Project Coyote The history of humans and carnivores in North America since European colonization is lopsided and biocidal. Whereas attacks by native carnivores on humans are so rare as to be statistically insignificant, European settlers and their descendants have shot, trapped, […]


Project Coyote ~ Promoting Coexistence Between People & Wildlife

By Rewilding / June 22, 2018

Late afternoon. The sun is out after a brief rain, and just down the road a full chorus erupts, taunting the neighbor’s two dogs. We hear three glorious songs from “The Four-Legged Dude” and friends, as New York Times best-selling author (Coyote America) Dan Flores calls the coyote in his article in the June 2018 […]

I desired to better understand these signs, their frequencies, trends, patterns and causes; to separate what fact from fiction; and to […]


Safeguarding an Adirondack Wildlife Corridor, for Wildlife and People

By Rewilding / June 14, 2018

By Jon Leibowitz, Executive Director of Northeast Wilderness Trust There is a place on the western shore of Lake Champlain where forest still dominates the landscape and bobcats, bear, otters, and mink can still wander from the lake to the high peaks of the Adirondacks through rocky hills and along river corridors. Stemming from Split […]


It’s Your Refuge

By Rewilding / June 12, 2018

By Brad Meiklejohn Please don’t call it “ANWR.” The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is not an acronym. We don’t refer to Yellowstone as “YELL” or Central Park as “CEPA.” By reducing it to four letters, the oil industry hopes you’ll forget that this place is a refuge that belongs to all of us. Conservationists have […]

By Rewilding / June 7, 2018

Review by Charles E. M. Dunlop There’s a fire backstage, he says. The clown comes out to warn the audience. Laughter and applause. They think it’s a joke! The clown repeats his warning. The fire grows hotter; the applause grows louder. That’s how the world will end, Wittgenstein says: to general applause, from halfwits who […]

By Rewilding / May 30, 2018

by Tim McNulty, April 4, 2018 Terrain.org: A Journal of the Built & Natural Environments Dear America, More than 200 feet below me, the blue-gray rush of the Elwha River cuts through the narrow walls of Glines Canyon on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula like a blade.
