Ecological civilisation has become China’s national strategy to promote harmonious coexistence between man and nature. China is a country that contains vast amounts of wilderness, while facing the threats from reduction and degradation of wilderness areas. As ecological civilisation provides new opportunities for rewilding, this chapter analyses how to incorporate rewilding into the core actions of ecological civilisation, including the National Territory Spatial Planning System (NTSPS), national parks and protected areas, and ecological protection and restoration projects of Mountains-Rivers-Forests-Farmlands-Lakes-Grasslands (MRFFLG). Rewilding and ecological civilisation are both developing concepts, and integrated thinking on these two concepts will promote related research and practice.
