Rewilding

Trophic Cascades via Wikimedia

Rewilding is large-scale conservation aimed at restoring and protecting natural processes and core wilderness areas, providing connectivity between such areas, and protecting or reintroducing apex predators and keystone species.

By making use of trophic cascades, ie. the effect that predators in an ecosystem have on the availability of resources, we can rewild areas where biodiversity has been lost. For example, by reintroducing predators such as wolves that prey on deer and other herbivores, we can increase the amount of vegetation available to other wildlife, and cascading down the chain, restore ecosystem biodiversity.

This is def the past and future of farming. Would be intd to find out how productive this type of farming is, ie. can it sustain our civilisation if intensively managed? Or will this only be effective after we lose a few billion? Reminds me a bit of do-nothing cropping..  https://youtu.be/XSKSxLHMv9k  More ...

And concepts like wildland farming, or "do-nothing cropping" as you've mentioned, look very promising. However, from what I've read so far about wildland farming in particular, in order for that to be sustainable, not all of the land should revert to wildland.
      The whole concept behind all this, is rather creating the so called buffer zones and green corridors, around the farms. This has more chances to be accepted by both, the rural communities and the business world, and also, it's a way of retaining the financial support coming from the governments.
      So, yes, we must gain the balance back and work with nature, rather than against it. Cliche ? Sounds like it 🙂, but I guess that's the way to tackle climate change and keep things rolling in business at the same time.
