Rewilding or regeneration of the land is now widely discussed as the conversation around climate change intensifies.
“The native ecosystems upon which we ultimately all depend are being erased from the landscape, and the best way to arrest that, is by allowing wild, native habitat to come back. The technical, ecological term for it is natural succession, so it is succeeding from one ecological state of relative sterility back to relative richness. It’s a privilege to behold that process because it’s such an explosion of life; there’s so much richness involved as Nature comes back. It’s an incredible thing to see that transformation from one state to another – the spontaneous creation of wild habitat.” ~ Eoghan Daltun
