Marc Bekoff on Rewilding our Hearts: Building Pathways of Compassion and Coexistence


In wildlife conservation work, rewilding refers to habitat restoration and the creation of corridors between preserved lands to allow declining populations to rebound. Marc Bekoff, one of the world’s most engaging animal experts and activists (he worked alongside leading writers and activists including Jane Goodall, Peter Singer, and PETA cofounder Ingrid Newkirk), here applies this to human attitudes.

He argues that unless we start rewilding ourselves, becoming profoundly reconnected to nature and fundamentally shifting our consciousness, our conservation efforts will have limited impact. As we become re-enchanted with the world, we dissolve artificial boundaries and truly connect with both nature and ourselves.
