We're curious to know if you've watched the popular "For More Wonder, Rewild the World" 2013 TED Talk where speaker George Monbiot "imagines a wilder world in which humans work to restore the complex, lost natural food chains that once surrounded us"?
Certainly a provocative and amazing invitation, esp. in terms of challenging some quintessential assumptions about the relationship between wildlife and nature (i.e. can bears actually alter the meandering of rivers?). Watching the video also offers us the chance to revisit poet T.S. Elliot's quote about exploring and knowing (which our teammate, Emi Day, found in the TED Talk's rich comments thread which you can find below the video itself):
"We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time."
