Teamwork makes the wild work. Working together is how we protect and nurture all life on Earth. Every creature, plant, and human—including you—plays a part in building a thriving planet. All things working together, for all wildkind.
"Re:wild offers a bold vision to amplify and scale the local solutions being led by Indigenous peoples and local communities, nongovernmental organizations, companies, and government agencies, to help increase their impact around the world," says Leonardo DiCaprio, a founding board member of Re:wild. The environmental heroes that the planet needs are already here. Now we all must rise to the challenge and join them.”
Rewilding our world is a big task. Bigger than any one person, organization, or government can accomplish alone. That’s why we’re glad you’re here! Team Re:wild is a dynamic, diverse, and driven team, leveraging our collective talents, passions, and creativity to drive lasting change.
No matter where you are on your journey, you’re on the team.
We do not call people out. We call people in.
Here’s what’s next:
Sign up to receive our Weekly Wild! We’ll send a short list to inspire you, pointing you to simple actions you can take and upcoming events that support a global push for a thriving planet.
Support the cause. We’ve worked with scientists to identify the areas and species that, if restored and protected, have the greatest benefit to the world at large. If you’re willing and able, support this important work!
Advocate for the Earth. Whether it is signing a petition or amplifying a story to convince governments to protect irreplaceable places, you can be a part of the power of collective action in rewilding our world.
And in return, we commit to building the platforms and the tools to promote nature-based solutions. We commit to foster creative collaborations, among individuals, communities, organizations, governments, and businesses towards a shared vision.
The rest is up to all of us.
