Australian Rewilding Network
Rewilding Australia seeks to support all other Australian rewilding programs by providing a Australian Rewilding Network information sharing hub. The network provides an information sharing platform that can assist in linking the individuals, organisations and researchers with projects, and will help share vital rewilding programs with our community.
Projects must meet at least one of the following criteria. Projects must use a science-based approach that aim to:
• restore ecosystem function by returning missing ecosystem links
• reduce management intervention by improving species interactions
• recognise the role of apex predators to ecosystem health
• consider paleontological records to guide an ecosystem management approach or species reintroduction
• consider Indigenous Ecological Knowledge (IEK) to guide an ecosystem management approach or species reintroduction
• improve ecosystem resilience to future threats e.g. climate change, invasive species
• increase landscape connectivity
• increase landscape biodiversity
• engage the community in planning and decision making
Wildlife protection sanctuaries using fences to prevent fox and cat predation and to reduce dispersal of native species, where a component of their overall experimental design aims to determine how to reintroduce those species beyond fenced enclosures, will also be considered.
