Our Values & Principles


We believe in empowering individuals and communities through education, providing them with the knowledge, skills, and tools to become effective rewilders in their natural environments.


We are committed to creating inclusive learning environments that welcome people from all backgrounds, cultures, and abilities. We believe in diversity and promote equity and accessibility in our educational programs.

Collective intelligence

We value the collective wisdom, knowledge, and experiences of diverse stakeholders, recognising that collaboration and shared learning are essential for effective rewilding efforts.

Ecological Integrity

We prioritize the restoration and preservation of natural ecosystems, emphasizing the importance of biodiversity, habitat connectivity, and ecosystem health in all our initiatives.

Community Engagement

We believe in the power of collaboration and community involvement in rewilding efforts. We actively engage local communities, stakeholders, and indigenous peoples, fostering partnerships and empowering them to take ownership of restoration and conservation initiatives.

Scientific rigor

Our work is grounded in sound scientific principles and evidence-based practices. We rely on rigorous scientific research, monitoring, and evaluation to inform our rewilding strategies and ensure their effectiveness.
