REWILDING BRITAIN 

Rewilding Britain's vision is to see rewilding flourishing across Britain, reconnecting us with the natural world, sustaining communities and tackling the species extinction crisis and climate emergency. Rewilding Britain champions rewilding and shares its expertise, it influences policy and legislation, it helps get locally-led initiatives off the ground and it connects people and organisations.
