The Rewilding Institute has published another essay on rewilding research in Europe by David Schwartz, a Randolph philosophy professor and the Mary Frances Williams Professor of Humanities.
In this piece, Schwartz shares his observations and experiences at the Elbe River Biosphere Reserve in Germany. This is the second in a series of articles by Schwartz that will be published on the Rewilding Institute’s website. His first article about the Oostvaarderplassen Nature Preserve was released in August.
Schwartz traveled to Europe and completed his research last summer. That work was part of his larger project that delves into the philosophy and ethics of rewilding, an environmental practice that aims to restore ecosystems damaged through human development. In addition to his field work, he studied rewilding while on sabbatical in New Mexico in 2017. Schwartz is also a member of the Rewilding Institute’s Rewilding Leadership Council.
