How Does ReWild Work?
There is a lot happening behind the scenes at ReWild, but its essential purpose is simple: let's use our gardens to create habitat that supports our natural environment.
What is a ReWild Perth garden?
‘Rewilding’ is a concept that is gaining attention around the world, and is largely about recreating balanced ecological systems in the wild that have been changed by humans. At the more extreme end of the scale, this might mean reintroducing apex predators to national parks (which is happening in the UK and the USA).
Good news: ReWild Perth is at the other end of the scale focusing on the home garden.
Our approach focuses on four habitat values that are under threat in urban areas.
We also measure a behaviour change value based on community action and pet ownership.

The Science Behind ReWild
ReWild Perth has been created by Perth NRM to help people make gardening choices that help support our natural environment. We have made every effort to provide information on plant species that belong where you live. But when it comes to habitat, something is always better than nothing. You do not need to remove plants because they’re not ‘native’ – just think about how to incorporate habitat into your garden design.
