Yes this is good news and has been gaining traction, however as always it is always a bumpy ride and not everyone is up for it. There are quite a few initiatives in place, and many focus on the reintroduction of the top carnivores which is proven to be vital for maintaining the equilibrium.
In addition to the fantastic Rewilding Europe site, there are also a few others worth a look:www.lcie.org

A movement to rewild the Sierra Moreno which has suffered much damage due to the loss of wolves, and the fences put up to keep in game animals.

George Monbiot has a book on the subject called "Feral" which is well worth a read, and has some radical thinking behind it. He also provides the narration for this video on the effects of the wolf reintroduction in Yellowstone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysa5OBhXz-Q
So yes Steve, a lot of good work is going on by a lot of good people, and something that will benefit us all on a global scale.
