Rewilding teacher toolkit
For much of human history most of the world’s land was wild, either forest or wild grasslands. Over the last few centuries this has changed dramatically and now half of all habitable land is used for agriculture. The expansion of agriculture has been one of humanity’s largest impacts on the environment. But we only need around a third of this land to feed the world.
It is possible for us to reverse the effects of our impact on the planet, and the key to this is rewilding.
What is Rewilding?
Rewilding is about helping nature take care of itself by letting natural processes repair and restore damaged landscapes. Through rewilding, wildlife's natural rhythms create wilder habitats with more biodiversity.
What is Biodiversity?
Beavers are amazing animals. Not only do they build dams, have orange teeth and stay underwater for up to eight minutes they can also help us fight climate change. How?
