The call of the wild 

Rewilding has long been a popular topic among Positive News readers. And as the movement has grown – once a germinating seed, now a veritable meadow of unfurling spring buds – the stories we’ve unearthed have also grown in depth, breadth and colour. 

Today, for World Rewilding Day, we’re sharing some of our favourite rewilding stories. From the scientists who rewilded a field 60 years ago (before the term even existed), to the ‘mini forest’ revolution sweeping the UK, we hope you enjoy these stories of nature coming back, in all its glory. 

They not only offer examples of what nature is capable of when left to flourish, but what humans can do when we set intentions. The residents of the once-declining declining Scottish town of Langholm are a case in point – they grabbed hold of a once-in-a-generation opportunity to create the country’s most ambitious rewilding project, and are now restoring an entire ecosystem at scale. 

Happy reading – we hope that, wherever you are, you’re able to experience a little bit of nature today.

Good news is natural: support regenerative news today

There’s no natural law that news should be about what’s going wrong – it’s a choice, driven by an “if it bleeds, it leads” culture in journalism.

In the same way that nature in its wild state is a balanced system of life and death, at Positive News we believe the news should include important stories about how, where and why life is thriving, too. Knowing about progress and potential solutions to important issues not only boosts people’s wellbeing, it draws attention and resources to positive change and empowers everyone to act.

So, help us to end the socially destructive monoculture of bad news, by planting seeds for a more regenerative news landscape.

If you can afford to, please become a Positive News supporter today. Give once from just £1, or join 1,000+ others who contribute an average of £3 or more per month. Thank you.
