Caroline Fraser on Rewilding the World (Podcast)



"Lose the animals, lose the ecosystems. Lose the ecosystems, game over." Caroline Fraser touched down in more than a dozen countries to understand what rewilding really means. Rewilding the World: Dispatches from the Conservation Revolution looks at how this radical approach is being put to work, pulling endangered species back from the brink, relinking critical habitats, and keeping the biological mechanisms of the planet humming. She also discovered how violent human conflicts have created unexpected havens for biodiversity; places like the Berlin Wall and Korea's Demilitarized Zone, a deadly swath where nature thrives in the absence of humans.
