Bring back vanished species, give vast areas over to nature, re-discover the ancient landscapes of our countries here, in Europe? A fascinating idea, of course. But the Rewilders’ vision – shared today by an increasing number of European decision-makers – raises many questions. Why not concentrate our efforts on our existing natural heritage? Why do we need an all-powerful wild nature? How would we create such a project in the modern and densely populated countries of the Old World? What would the conse- quences be for existing ecosystems? What would be the risk to human activity?
All the more so since Rewilding goes far beyond a simple matter of managing biodiversity, and of conserving wildlife…..This film is a unique opportunity to look at both sides of the coin on this, our continent.
