Pleistocene rewilding is the advocacy of the reintroduction of descendants of Pleistocene megafauna, or their close ecological equivalents. An extension of the conservation practice of rewilding, which involves reintroducing species to areas where they became extinct in recent history (hundreds of years ago or less).
Life After People
If the Pleistocene Rewilding in Africa had already happened, this time in 1990's and 2000's instead of the future, what will happen to the introduced wildlife in Africa?

Power grids fail.
1 week after people
The tapirs, camels, wild water buffaloes, Asian elephants, European bison, jaguars, pronghorns, tigers, and Australian & Asian crocodiles in Africa have started to spread from their introduced lands.
1 month after people
Despite competition from invasives such as wild boars and others, which aren't supposed to live in Africa, tapirs, and other recently introduced and reintroduced species continued to thrive, even in life after people.
1 year after people
Tapirs, camelids, Asian elephants, jaguars, and others are now seen in abandoned cities, towns, urban and suburbs, and other human settlements of North America after their former rulers are gone.
10 years after people
Human settlements are starting to be replaced by grasslands, savannas, forests, rainforests, and other native lands, allowing the tapirs, camelids, Asian elephants, and others to spread even further into more land areas.
1,000 years after people
In 1,000 years after people disappeared, all human settlements look like forests, swamps, and rainforests with some remaining buildings, while all animals that were part of the Pleistocene rewilding project had somehow survived, because they had adapted to the new ecosystem and have adapted to deal with the competition from native species and invasive species. Fortunately, non of the animals that are part of the Pleistocene Rewilding has negative impact to Africa, they actually have a positive impact to all of the environments of Africa. Lots of large Megafuana are back roaming Africa. In African rivers, dugongs now live in rivers of Africa once again like they did in the Pliocene-Pleistocene because they were brought here by humans.
