Our Biography 

Welcome to the LionMan School of ReWilding, where since 2018, we've been dedicated to nurturing nature literacy among thousands of children. Our unique approach measures their understanding through diverse criteria such as plant knowledge, local archaeology, and practical skills like spear-throwing. At our schools, nestled in the heart of wilderness(s), we impart ancestral survival skills rooted in the traditions of Homo sapiens. Emphasizing outdoor learning and embracing risk and freedom, we foster a dynamic environment for our students' growth. Looking ahead, our vision extends globally: we aspire to steward properties worldwide in collaboration with Indigenous communities, sharing languages, traditional knowledge, and ecosystem restoration practices. Our goal is to revive landscapes to their pre-1492 richness, echoing a harmonious coexistence with nature.
