Nature restoration is not new. There are some great examples of rescuing rare butterflies or birds, or saving unusual meadows or moors. But they have failed to tackle the scale of our national ecological catastrophe.
Turtle doves, purple emperors, peregrines and nightingales have appeared at Knepp Estate in Sussex over the past 15 years of ‘wilding’.
The dams on our Cornwall Beaver Project at Woodland Valley Farm have reduced flood peak flow rates by over 30%.
Space for Nature’s Bee Roadzz improve Wiltshire insect corridors and Back from the Brink is saving 20 native species.
It’s time to join the dots and build a nationwide network for wildlife. To achieve this, we must work together – conservation groups, landowners, farmers, policymakers, gardeners – and beavers can play a part too.
