Reductions in EU farming subsidies, together with a growing interest in the value of wild places and the economic and social benefits which they can confer, are creating a unique opportunity to promote such schemes for large scale habitat restoration. This initiative has important implications for conservation in developing countries. If Britain is seen to be re-establishing wild places, and moreover for economic as well as conservation reasons, then developed country proposals for preservation of diminishing habitat and vanishing species in the Third World would carry significantly more credibility.
