Humans have devastated this Earth, in so many ways. We have decimated animal and plant biodiversity, pushing many many species to extinction. Rewilding, restoring the Earth to all the great biodiversity that it once was, is an exciting approach to conservation, and even the woolly mammoth could one day be reintroduced to its native land. Imagine living a life where you could see a woolly mammoth in the wild not just a cartoon one voiced by Nicki Minaj like in the cinematic masterpiece Ice Age: Continental Drift.
But rewilding doesn't need tons of money and multiple people with PhDs, you can rewild literally everything in your life. We can rewild our diet (and gut microbiota in the process), our gardens, our parks, our architecture, our cities, our entire lives. We must value diversity in all facets of life. We can't keep forcing the environment to be exactly what we want it to be, let's provide it with everything it needs and let it determine its own future. We must not only rewild things in our control but demand that our cities rewild our urban spaces! This is not just our planet, all organisms have equal right to space on Earth.
