Help us to realise our vision of a nature-rich tapestry of rewilded land across Scotland, where wildlife and people flourish. The Northwoods Rewilding Network supports small estates, farms, crofts and community lands to restore natural processes and diversity of life through rewilding.
Despite its beauty and drama, Scotland has become a nature-depleted nation. As we face growing climate and biodiversity emergencies, rewilding could be a game-changer, restoring habitats and diversity, mitigating climate change and supporting rural communities. However, most ecological restoration is still limited to large landholdings. To drive real change across Scotland, rewilding must scale up and become more accessible to the many smaller-scale landholdings that make up our landscapes.
SCOTLAND: The Big Picture will partner with at least 20 small estates, farms and community lands over the next two years to form the Northwoods Rewilding Network. We provide tailored support to help our partners deliver positive ecological change, underpinned by a shared brand and set of rewilding principles. The network will create a chain of ecologically-restored land, helping species to recover and disperse, while sharing the emerging stories and models to show others how it can be done.
