Rewilding | The Wildlife Trusts have announced a new rewilding programme, Transforming Nature’s Recovery, backed by £6 million from the Ecological Restoration Fund. There are three strands to the initiative. The first is keystone species reintroduction – though think less wolves and lynx, and more beavers, ponies and cows. The second is marine conservation, supporting nature’s recovery in 30% of Welsh seas. And the third is landscape rewilding, with projects lined up for the Peak District, Hadrian’s Wall and the River Severn catchment, among other places. You can read more about their thinking behind the project in this presentation, as well as further details on the site-specific projects here. The Evening Standard covered the story.
