What is Rewilding?

A healthy environment is the foundation of all life-supporting systems, including that of our own well-being and offers the opportunity for socio-economic development.

Who is it for?

When we work together with nature to help her rebuild biodiversity in the soil through habitat restoration, we help to mitigate carbon emissions and help with climate breakdown.


Rewilding is a form of environmental conservation and ecological restoration with species that are native to an area.

The Horse as a native species to North America is an “integral component of the Natural System.” As stated by the Bureau of Land Management’s WILD FREE-ROAMING HORSES AND BURROS ACT OF 1971 (PUBLIC LAW 92-195)

Their job as a keystone species allows them to maintain, protect and help to rebuild environmental systems, allowing other species to thrive alongside them––all working to keep nature in balance, by helping to build biodiversity.

Cana Foundation works with science backed information to create rewilding initiatives for wild horses and environments, including with Science Advisor Dr. Ross MacPhee of the American Museum of Natural History.
