George Monbiot's TED Talk on Rewilding


In our podcast episode "How Rewilding Works," we reference George Monbiot's 2013 TED Talk "For more wonder, rewild the world," so I wanted to share it with you hear. In typical TED fashion, it contains inspiring ideas with varying degrees of application to the real world. We discuss all of this in our podcast episode.
