Rewilding California

On this week’s EcoNews Report, host Tom Wheeler talks to friends from across California about “rewilding.” What the heck is rewilding? It is a global movement to restore lands and ecosystems to a more complex and “wild” state, often with the reintroduction of keystone species—think large mammals like elk or ecosystem engineers like beavers — that may be absent. This episode is a crossover collaboration with John Davis of the Rewilding Institute (and host of the Rewildling Earth Podcast) and the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center.
