Northwoods Rewilding Network

The Northwoods Rewilding Network is an exciting and pioneering initiative bringing a joined-up approach to rewilding in Scotland.

The aim of the national network is to enable effective rewilding actions grounded in best practice, and to deliver positive ecological, environmental and socio-economic outcomes. Connectivity across the landscape is key, and partnerships will allow projects to create wildlife corridors and work together to amplify natural processes.

People are a part of nature - the network demonstrates innovative new models of land management and the range of nature-based business opportunities rewilding can drive. It will also create a shared brand and vision for new businesses to thrive within rewilded landscapes.

Drawing on the rewilding knowledge and expertise in the SCOTLAND: The Big Picture team, Northwoods delivers tailored support with a strong emphasis on:

- Application of rewilding best practice

- Financial and business development support

- Communications and storytelling resources
