Appendices to Rewilding North America
Due to space limitations, the three appendices to Rewilding North America were not included in the printed book, but are available on the Island Press website. Clicking here will take you directly to them.

Appendix A “Large Core Complexes in the South-to-North MegaLinkages” lists the tentative large core complexes with estimated acreages for the Pacific, Spine of the Continent, and Atlantic MegaLinkages.

Appendix B “Wildlands Network Unit Classification” is a more detailed description of the kinds of units that make up a wildlands network than the discussion in the book.

Appendix C “Groups Working on Continental-Scale Conservation” is a contact list of the primary groups involved with continental-scale conservation. (A more extensive contact list of such groups with links to their websites will later appear on The Rewilding Institute website.)

Island Press

Island Press is the world’s foremost publisher of conservation books. We are pleased to link to their book categories that deal with rewilding and continental-scale conservation issues.

Organizational Links by Category

The Rewilding Institute is a resource for rewilding and continental-scale conservation. In this Organizational Directory we provide links to a wide variety of groups (local, regional, national, and international) working on various aspects of rewilding and continental-scale conservation.

These groups are listed under several categories; some are listed in more than one category. Where the group’s location isn’t obvious from their name, we give the region where the group is involved. Groups generally working on national or international scales are listed first in each category.

This list is not complete. We hope to add groups to it as we become aware of their work. If you would like to be listed in this directory, please send us your website address and a sentence or two describing what you do. The decision to list groups rests solely with The Rewilding Institute. If you no longer wish to be listed or your group is defunct or its mission has changed, please let us know.
