As travelers, we directly impact the world’s most beautiful places, and we can be a major force in protecting them. Which is why rewilding is our Cause to Rally Behind for 2022.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has perhaps the best description that gets to the heart of what rewilding means: “Rewilding aims to restore healthy ecosystems by creating wild, biodiverse spaces. It rebuilds ecosystems previously modified by human disturbance, using the plant and animal life that would have been present had the disturbance never occurred. In doing so, rewilding restores the natural processes that provide humanity with clean air, water, food, shelter, and medicine.”
