we’re on a mission

ReWild Michigan enhances public understanding, advances stewardship, and develops resources for fish & wildlife conservation.

ReWild Michigan was founded in 2018 and is based in Elk Rapids, Michigan.

here’s why:

In the 1800s, Michigan nearly lost its native populations of Lake Sturgeon. We did lose an entire population of native Arctic Grayling, but in the wake of the conservation movement of the 1900s and the establishment of sorely needed natural resource management, stewardship has come a long way. Today, the viability of native fish and wildlife populations depends on a combination of public will, philanthropy, and the collaborative efforts of sovereign nations, leadership in education, as well as statewide natural resource management. According to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, 301 species are of greatest concern in the State’s Wildlife Action Plan, and species, such as the Lake Sturgeon, Inland Cisco, Piping Plover, Kirtland’s Warbler, and Eastern Box Turtle are among those that need your support right now. For species of greatest concern, there is work to be done, and we hope you will join us in support, because your role is important. It’s up to you. Will you support fish and wildlife conservation?
