The benefits of rewilding

The benefits of nature connection are widely documented in scientific literature and we recommend spending quality time in the outdoors – particularly camping, bush walking, gardening, wildlife spotting, waterfall exploring and ocean frolicking. Many studies have shown that connecting with nature can have positive psychological, physical, social and spiritual benefits for both adults and children. Some of the perks:

Improves motor development and coordination
Quicker recovery time in hostpital
Increase in exercise and fitness level
Reduces stress and anxiety
Improves health outcomes
Increases focus and concentration
And many more!

Why do we need to be wild?

We live in a modern, fast-paced, concrete-clad world where nature generally isn’t respected or prioritised. This is a big problem, because we ARE nature. All life on Earth is intimately connected. As mammals, our ancestors date back millions of years. All living things have evolved together over this time, and fortunately, life will go on and keep evolving long after we humans have gone. In order to have respect for nature and our innate wildness, we need to connect back in with where we came from, find our wild and what it means to be a human animal in this crazy world on this beautiful, wild planet!
With many Australians spending most of their time indoors and suffering from the resulting ‘nature-deficit disorder’, there’s never been a better time to get outdoors and rewild! All we ask… is that you use this piece of modern technology to CONNECT.
