Wildlands Network's Chief Scientist, Ron Sutherland, discusses the importance of rewilding efforts and their vision of continental wildways to promote wildlife conservation in North America. Rewilding, a concept rooted in letting nature reclaim its territory, emphasizes the need to reintroduce keystone species to restore ecological balance. Ron explains how rewilding helps to manage ecosystems more efficiently and highlights the case of Yellowstone's wolf reintroduction, which led to a cascade of positive ecological effects.

Blog: World Rhino Day 2023

World Rhino Day
World Rhino Day

Today is World Rhino Day! With approximately less than 27,000 rhinos left in the wild, it is imperative to support organizations like Global Conservation Corps and the rangers who are on a mission to provide a future for these keystone species. The rhinos are a target for poachers and wildlife traffickers for their horn. The horn (which is made up of the same properties as our nails) is prized by some people as it is assumed to have magical healing properties.

Interview: RHINO MAN The Movie


On a new Wild For Change podcast, we speak with John Jurko II, creative director of Global Conservation Corps and lead producer and director of the film RHINO MAN.

Global Conservation Corps is a non-profit organization that is bridging the gap between communities and wildlife. The film RHINO MAN was the first project of Global Conservation Corps and was created to support the rangers protecting the rhino and to share their stories.

Rangers are the front line, the boots on the ground, protecting our diminishing population of rhino that deserve to be here but are being poached for their horn. These rangers put their lives on the line to protect the rhino. This is what makes a ranger so special and formidable. This is truly where passion meets purpose.

This was the impetus of Chicagoland Pig Rescue.

But April and Tyler aren’t stopping at rescuing pigs and finding them sanctuary placement. They are documenting the intricacies and rich inner worlds of pigs’ lives to raise awareness that pigs are highly intelligent and sentient and deserve more in life than to be treated as a commodity or pest.
