Rewilding (conservation biology)

Rewilding is a conservation biology technique that helps restore an environment to its wilder, more natural state. It focuses on bringing back the animals and plants that have died out in the area. For example, if there are no bears in an area, then rewilding can be used to reintroduce the species. Rewilding also often includes the protection of a species' habitat and its food sources. In a nutshell, rewilding helps nature return to a wilder, healthier state.
