Rewilding Britain is a charity that focuses on rewilding to help tackle climate breakdown and ecological collapse. There has been a catastrophic decline in wildlife in Britain over recent decades with many species struggling to survive or even crashing towards extinction. Climate change is making this situation even more precarious, and threatening the life support systems on which we all depend.
Rewilding offers hope in bringing an abundance of life back to land and sea – more animal and bird life, more trees and plant life, and more opportunities for human life to flourish. The restoration of woodland, peatland, grasslands and other key habitats has the potential to remove millions of tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere every year - a crucial part of mitigating against global heating. Rewilding can help reconnect people with nature, and provide new opportunities for livelihoods.
Rewilding Britain is working with local people, landowners, local authorities and experts to influence and change policy, practice and legislation; enable and support collaborative large-scale rewilding projects; and help and guide smaller-scale rewilding. It campaigns to raise awareness of rewilding and its benefits.
