The term "rewild" was invented by the American conservationist Dave Foreman in the 1980s and first appeared in print in 1990. It has subsequently been adopted by biologists and conservationists who have championed the importance of joining up networks of isolated patches of wilderness and in particular the restoration of habitat through the reintroduction of apex predators, grazing animals and natural processes in general. We have extensive coverage on rewilding projects in the UK and Europe.
