Rewilding is being promoted as an ambitious upgrade to current approaches to nature conservation. Interest is growing in popular and scientific literatures, and rewilding is the subject of significant comment and debate, outstripping scientific research and conservation practice. The term rewilding was coined in the mid-1990's by a group of US conservation biologists. They presented rewilding as the scientific strategy, focusing on securing and connecting large areas and releasing functional species such as wolves. Soon, the term rewilding has been associated with conservation initiatives that explicitly seek to restore missing or dysfunctional ecosystem processes, often trough the reintroduction of “functional” species. Projects and research are found the world over, with concentrations in Europe and North America. A common aim is to maintain, or increase, biodiversity, while reducing the impact of present and past human interventions through the restoration of species and ecological processes. Rewilding Velebit project is implemented on the Velebit mountain in Croatia since 2011, in close cooperation and under partnership with RewildingEurope. Main activities are boosting and protection of the original natural processes, like natural forest regeneration and natural grazing. Within the key rewilding cores and their linkage to reduce the fragmentation of the habitat, with the ultimate goal of achieving the state of the ecosystem in which passive management is sufficient and human involvement minimized, while maintaining optimal functionality of ecosystems and biodiversity.
