The concept of rewilding has moved beyond conservation biology and now has
broader cultural significance (Bekoff, 2014; Monbiot, 2014). Mark Bekoff speaks
about this more pervasive cultural phenomenon as “rewilding our hearts” (2014),
while George Monbiot explicitly deals with both senses of rewilding, as the
subtitle to his book indicates: Feral: Rewilding the land, the sea, and human life (
2014). Regarding the broader cultural project, built e as it is on the biological
project of ...

He writes that society can be sanctified without gods, but not without totems. The
more august the totem, the worthier, since there appears to be something
comforting and inspiring about the notion of being part of something that has

In Monbiot's Feral: Rewilding the Land, the Sea, and Human Life, the author is
bullish, among other initiatives, on the reintroduction of beaver, an extirpated
keystone species in the United Kingdom, and isn't afraid to lay on the definitions,
even when they keen to the complex: “Rewilding recognizes that nature consists
not just of a collection of species but also of their ever-shifting relationships with
each other and with the physical environment. It understands that to keep an
ecosystem ...

has inspired a European rewilding movement to increase wolf populations in
Spain and Italy as well as in Scotland, where sheep are overgrazing. Author
George Monbiot's book, FERAL: Rewilding the Land, the Sea, and Human Life,
notes that in Scotland “people are less hostile to the reintroduction of the wolf

antagonistic on balance, but not universally so.” This modern tolerance from
sheep herders might ...

In his recent book, Feral: Rewilding the Land, the Sea, and Human Life (2014),
environmental activist George Monbiot speaks passionately in favor of the “
rewilding” movement. Allowing for ferality or “the desire for a fiercer, less
predictable ecosystem,” is an important step towards what he sees as the
necessary “recognition that nature consists not just of a collection of species, but
also of their ever-shifting relationships with each other and with the physical
environment”(8–9, 11).
