We envision a world where wildlife thrives in healthy landscapes, valued by communities that embrace and benefit from the diversity and integrity of natural ecosystems.

Rewilding India

Rewilding India is a movement and organisation, formally established on 15 November 2019 as an independent Public Charitable Trust registered in India. Our goal is science-based ecological restoration of degraded landscapes to restore ecosystem processes and reintroduce lost species for the benefit of the local and global communities. We are passionate about reviving and conserving India’s unique and irreplaceable natural and cultural heritage.

As a movement, we are inclusive and engage people and organisations throughout India. We have only one agenda: developing sustainable projects that are in sync with their cultural and natural environment. This requires enhanced and concerted actions at all levels (international, national, local), and between all sectors (governmental, non-governmental, corporate, public and private).

Implemented through partnerships and social business concepts, our projects focus on financial self-sustainability with ecological and economic benefits. New employment and economic opportunities will enable young people to stay in their regions and villages, revive communities and halt depopulation and marginalization of rural areas.


Rewilding India protects natural ecosystems and supports local communities through science-based ecological restoration, nature-based solutions and education, contributing to sustainable development, revitalisation of local economies and climate change mitigation, while inspiring people to discover and value nature.

We focus on these key areas in order to achieve our mission.
