Rewilding Britain only exists because people wanted us to. We began as an idea in 2013 following the publication of George Monbiot’s book, Feral. Inspired by those pioneering rewilding in Britain, Feral brought rewilding to a wider audience. It prompted discussion, controversy and excitement among conservationists, land managers and the general public.
Following consultation with a diverse range of people and organisations, we launched as a charity registered in Scotland, Wales and England in 2015. A board of trustees (see below) governs our work.
