Rewilding has become increasingly popular around the world, with rewilding practice interpreted in a variety of ways to suit local ecological and cultural contexts. This has led to some confusion over the term rewilding, leaving it open to misinterpretation and the risk of diluting its longer-term potential to deliver transformational change. There is, therefore, consensus that the concept of rewilding needs some unification to cement its reputation and harness its momentum while maintaining its multivalence and adaptability to different social or ecological conditions. To aid this process, this chapter will focus on the aims of rewilding highlighted in data collected through a survey of rewilding experts, and proposes a rewilding framework based on these.
