Situation

The breakdown of our climate and the extinction crisis severely threaten both nature and human society. The UK is one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world, ranked 189th out of 218 countries. 56% of UK species are in decline, 15% threatened with extinction. There has never been a more urgent need to address the state of our natural world. Restoring healthy ecosystems on land and at sea is essential for our future, for reversing biodiversity loss and reducing carbon emissions.

Solution

The Rewilding Network comprises members from diverse groups including landowners, farmers, businesses, NGOs, state-owned actors and communities. Natural processes are beginning to be restored and nature-based economic opportunities established. Shared experiences within a decentralised and locally-led network of rewilding initiatives catalyses further action. This will support an acceleration in rewilding and nature’s recovery across at least 30% of Britain’s land and sea by 2030.

  • "Oak is excited to be supporting Rewilding Britain and to see how things are starting to change rapidly. We share its hope that the land can repair itself, absorbing more carbon, enriching soils, expanding wildlife, and giving us all a chance to adapt to our changing climate before it’s too late."

  • "Rewilding is not a project or option; it's something that's now essential for a healthy and restored future for Britain's land and seas for all of us."
