Dive into the video series Stay Curious, which offers down-to-earth explanations of complex science, as well as portraits and talks with the Carlsberg Foundation's top researchers.
STAY CURIOUS: The concept of “rewilding” covers the endeavours to lessen human impact on natural ecosystems and restoring natural processes. Professor Jens Christian Svenning’s research revolves around how to reinstate animal populations to restore their function in the food chain, hence increasing biodiversity.
STAY CURIOUS: When Jens-Christian Svenning saw a photo in National Geographic of his father in the tropics, he was done for. He is passionate about understanding nature, its biodiversity, and the coexistence of species. With knowledge comes responsibility and this is something he is highly aware of, in terms of working to understand how we can restore animal populations, both in Denmark and the rest of the world.
STAY CURIOUS: Rewilding is about lessening human interference with the ecosystems of nature and restoring natural processes. For this reason, research is being done on how to reinstate animal populations to restore their function in the food chain, hence, increasing the biodiversity.
