Our work

We're working to make rewilding a reality in Britain

Our work

Rewilding will only happen if people want it to. We've been talking to a wide range of people and organisations about how Rewilding Britain can most add value. These conversations have motivated us to demonstrate that rewilding can work ecologically and economically. 

We are focusing on a few large areas around Britain, working collectively with those who are central to making this happen. This includes local communities, landowners, businesses, statutory bodies and relevant experts. 

Our vision

To see at least one million hectares in Britain supporting natural ecological processes for the benefit of people and nature

Our mission

To demonstrate a model for rewilding that works at a scale new to Britain while providing opportunities for communities to flourish

What we're doing

Pilot projects

Pilot projects

We’re working with interested parties to catalyse a number of large-scale pilot projects through locally led rewilding partnerships. 

This includes jointly identifying opportunities to create nature-based economies, and connect up existing habitat restoration projects. 

Building knowledge

Building knowledge

We’re exploring a practical approach to rewilding that could provide an alternative model for land use and conservation.

We’re sharing what we learn to inform and influence others. This includes research, scoping studies and helpful guides. 

Sharing stories

Sharing stories

We want to empower people with a good understanding of rewilding, its benefits and opportunities. We want to show how it can work in practice.

We’re doing this through sharing stories and articles on our blog.
