Rewild Carbon is Durrell's wild, colourful and impactful carbon offsetting programme. We reduce carbon in the atmosphere by rewilding threatened ecosystems which are rich in wildlife.

Our projects are designed together with local communities to benefit sustainable livelihoods.  Together, we know the wildlife, the threats and the land best. 

Our first Rewild Carbon project is in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil, where we are restoring forest corridors to create lifelines for wildlife.  It is one of the most species-rich habitats on the planet, yet only 6% of it remains, in scattered fragments.

Investing in Rewild Carbon is about so much more than just offsetting your carbon footprint.  It’s also about reviving ecosystems, recovering species and rebuilding livelihoods.

Offsetting your carbon through Durrell means that you are investing in one of the most precious ecosystems on the planet and the many animals and communities that flourish there.  Your carbon footprint is truly rewilded. 

Together, we can create a healthier planet for people and wildlife. Wherever you are on your journey to sustainability, we hope that you will join us on our Rewild Carbon journey.
