Rewilding is the process of creating a lifestyle that is beyond
domestication. [" [http://www.greenanarchy.info/rewild.php Rewilding] " from [http://www.greenanarchy.info/ Green Anarchist Infoshop] ] In green anarchismand anarcho-primitivism, humans are said to be "domesticated" by civilization. Supporters of such human rewilding argue that through the process of domestication, human wildness has been tamed and taken away. [GA Collective & Coalition Against Civilization, " [http://www.greenanarchy.org/index.php?action=viewwritingdetail&writingId=285 The Origins of Civilization] ] Rewilding, then, is about overcoming human domestication and returning to the innate wildness. Though often associated with primitive skills and learning knowledge of wild plants and animals, it emphasizes primal living as a holisticreality rather than just a number of skills or specific type of knowledge.
Rewilding is most associated with green anarchy and
anarcho-primitivismor anti-civilization anarchy in general, [The GA & Wildroots Collectives, " [http://www.greenanarchy.org/index.php?action=viewwritingdetail&writingId=240 A Primer for a Balanced Existence Amid the Ruins of Civilization] "] though there is a large primitive living contingent who come at it from a less militant direction.

In the field of
conservation biology, the term 'rewilding' refers to passive and active actions intended to result in the reintroduction of extirpated or once-native species back into natural landscapes. In North America, if the temporal benchmark for what constitutes native species is pre-Columbian (prior to the arrival of Christopher Columbus), then the action is a kind of deep-time rewilding, as in Pleistocene rewilding.
