Rewilding shouldn’t happen in isolation – by connecting with others and by inspiring people to get involved, we can make a bigger difference. The Devon Rewilding Network provides a collaboration between people to connect, support, inform and guide.

Rewilding at Sharpham: Making space for nature

Ambios is a not-for-profit nature conservation training organisation. Since 2012 they have been tenants of land on the Sharpham Estate, in the Dart Valley, South Devon AONB

In April 2020 they took a big step in taking on an additional 50 acres of post-agricultural land on the Sharpham estate with the vision of rewilding it. This work sees them rewild the landscape whilst nurturing and echoing elements of the historic parkland, making more space for nature and providing an opportunity to share the rewilding process with a rich and diverse audience. Having a landscape to learn from that is prioritising land management for wildlife is critical for our nature conservation trainees – many of whom will go on to be the next generation of wildlife professionals.
