global rewilding alliance
Building a network to rewild the world
The Global Rewilding Alliance (GRA) is a growing network of more than 125 practitioner and messenger organizations, and an official implementation partner of the UN Decade of Restoration. Alliance members are working to rewild more than 100 million hectares of land and sea in more than 70 countries.
The GRA connects people working on rewilding in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, North America and globally. With respect and inclusion for age, gender, culture and origin, the Alliance works towards agreed targets and aims to ensure that common messages are understood, practical actions undertaken, and results achieved.
The GRA adopts 12 guiding “Principles for Rewilding” outlined in its Global Charter for Rewilding the Earth -- demonstrating that rewilding is best regarded as a socioecological movement for the benefit of all life on earth.
The GRA facilitates activities of its members to mainstream the idea, theory and practice of rewilding, and to insert the idea and practice into global processes, agendas, and institutions. The GRA acts also as a platform for networking and knowledge exchange for its members so that we increase the area of land and sea that is restored and rewilded. The GRA recognizes and works actively to strengthen the importance of Indigenous communities as stewards of their traditional homelands, and as key partners to protect, restore, and rewild our Earth.
