Born to Rewild follows John Davis as he treks 5000 miles in 8 months from Mexico to Canada to bring awareness to the importance of connected wildlife corridors in the Western Wildway, along the spine of the continent. Taking the route of grizzlies, wolves, cougars and jaguars, John experienced their greatest challenges in getting where they need to go. Knowing these challenges accomplishes little, however. He goes the extra mile, meeting conservation heroes and learning about amazing projects that are key to connecting western wild places.

The film is followed by panel discussions with filmmakers John Davis, Dave Foreman, Dave Parsons, and Judy Calman.

The screenings are co-sponsored by several regional conservation entities, including Albuquerque Wildlife Federation, Animal Protection New Mexico, BirdsEye View GIS, Defenders of Wildlife, Ecotone Landscape Planning, New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, New Mexico Wildlife Federation, Pathways/Wildlife Corridors of New Mexico, The Rewilding Institute, and Santa Fe Conservation Trust.
