This chapter discusses the re-wilding of Pleistocene Park. Re-wilding is a plan to restore animals that disappeared thirteen thousand years ago from Pleistocene North America, which offers an alternative conservation strategy for the twenty-first century. A host of large North American mammals—herbivores and their predators—abruptly had gone extinct at the end of the Pleistocene. The chapter suggests replacing some of the extinct North American species with related Old World forms in need of protection.

Keywords:   re-wilding, Pleistocene Park, mammals, herbivores, predators
