Rewilding

 

What is rewilding and what is it important for the world?

 

Rewilding is the large-scale restoration of ecosystems aimed at increasing biodiversity and restoring natural processes to a point where nature can take care of itself. without further human intervention. Where appropriate include ire-introduction of missing plants and animals. The goal is to create a self-sustaining, resilient, self-regulating ecosystem. Repairing the damage to the planet that we have caused.

 

People and the planet are only as healthy as the ecosystems we all depend on.

Healthy soils are great carbon sinks. Biodiversity are great for our insects and pollination.

 

The UK has some of the worst monoculture land in Europe. Grass is not a native species and much of our lands are baren deserts devoid of biodiversity.

 

What can you do?

 

If you have land or access to some land then you can take a step plan for rewilding your land.

The United Nations has listed rewilding as one of several methods needed to achieve massive scale restoration of natural ecosystems, which they say must be accomplished by 2030 as part of the 30x30 campaign.

Plant a Tree or twelve

 

Trees provide food and oxygen, they help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change. Also help cool cities during heatwaves, retain water and haven for urban wildlife.

 

The world needs billion and billions of trees planted to draw down carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and help our soils, water retention and biodiversity.

 

Get involved and start planting.
