Rewilding can be defined as the large-scale restoration of ecosystems to the point where nature is allowed to take care of itself. The process of rewilding is the part we as humans can play in conserving the natural world. The rewilding movement aims to restore nature to how it was before human intervention happened.
So, why do we need rewilding in Britain?
Today nature in our country is in serious trouble. More than half of our species are in decline and 15% is threatened with extinction. Rewilding is an attempt to reconnect and reset, to reverse species extinction and allow nature to flourish. It is a chance to mitigate the worst effects of climate change.
How can you play a part in rewilding Britain?
Don’t worry, you don't need acres of land to play your part.
If you live in a flat Invest in some window boxes to bring pops of green to a concrete jungle, and nature will follow! Rewilding in the garden is as easy as letting go of control and order. Encourage the growth of wild flowers and ease up on pulling weeds. This will encourage a natural ecosystem to develop, causing wildlife to flourish!
