Rewilding Knowledge Hub

Rewilding has been described as the optimistic agenda for halting the decline in biodiversity and restoring a balanced suite of ecosystem services. But, it is a field that currently lacks a comprehensive and dedicated evidence base, raising the question: will it work? The lack of an obvious and easily searchable body of supporting knowledge makes it difficult for policy-makers, practitioners and academics to consider the merits, risks, costs and opportunities of rewilding. Yet, the ideas behind rewilding are based on decades of ecological, physical and socio-economic research, as well as conservation experience. The Rewilding Knowledge Hub (RKH) Bibliography, presented here, is a first effort to begin to collate, structure, and disseminate this knowledge to a broad audience to help develop the science and practice of rewilding.
