We are in the process of settting up Wild World Rewilding as a not for profit organisation that focuses on rewilding and ecological restoration.

We are actively looking for individuals and organisations to partner with, with the intention of setting up a rewilding centre in the South West of France in 2024. We are currently looking for a property suitable for this in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.

We are planning on establishing a Rewilding Education Centre and Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre on the property, rewilding the property itself to the natural fauna and flora of the area.

If you are interested in partnering with, or supporting us in this venture please contact us at


Wild World Rewilding was founded by Deryck van Steenderen, an environmentalist, writer, filmmaker and photographer.

Deryck graduated from Cambridge Universities’ CISL Business Sustainability Management course in 2021 and is a member of Sustaineers, a diverse community of business professionals who believe that business plays a critical role in achieving Global Sustainability Goals. He completed both the BAFTA Albert and AdGreen Sustainable Production training, trained as a Sustainable Production Trainer with AdGreen, completed the IPA Ad Net Zero Essentials Certificate and Diversity and Inclusion Essentials Certificate, and is certified Carbon Literate by the Carbon Literacy Project.

Deryck initially studied Landscape Design and Environmental Management at CPUT in Cape Town, South Africa. He worked in Industrial and Commercial Landscape Design and Construction that included Environmental Rehabilitation and Restoration, including the management of a corporate owned Nature Reserve rehabilitation project. He then moved into Media and Marcomms working on projects from ATL Advertising to Reality TV and Editorial content. He is a published writer, photographer, filmmaker and marcomms creative. He has worked with and for top international advertising agencies on campaigns for clients like Google, Android, Red Bull, Virgin Holidays, Samsung, Nokia Siemens Network, Sally Hansen, Manor, Revlon, Capita amongst many others.

He sincerely believes that people need to be rewilded as much as ecosystems do, a core focus of his work, as people reconnected to Nature naturally support and protect it.
