Rewilding can cover a wide range of subject areas.
Until we can organise in-person events safely we’d like to facilitate some online “cluster group” meetings for Yorkshire rewilders, across a wide range of topics, in the months to come. The aim is to bring together like-minded people to share experiences, ideas, knowledge and support. And this is where we need your help…
We’d like to know which topics you would find most useful and be interested in discussing, so please take a minute to fill out our quick survey that can be found at the following link and tick all the ones you might be interested in attending – and if there’s anything we’ve missed or you have other suggestions, please add those in the box at the end.
Paul Jepson’s and Cain Blythe’s new book, Rewilding: The Radical New Science of Ecological Recovery, is the subject of tonight’s webinar hosted by Heal from 19:30 to 20:30 GMT. We have a short review of this book in the Books page.
If you’re interested in how farming might help improve nature, water quality, biodiversity, and reduce chemical use, there’s an interesting webinar tomorrow by the Pasture-Fed Livestock Association and Groundswell looking at landscape-level collaboration and ELMS schemes.
The webinar is a Q&A discussion chaired by Sue Pritchard, a Pasture-Fed Livestock Association member from Wales and Chief Executive of the Food, Farming & Countryside Commission (FFCC), and features panelists from Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Knepp Estate, and a farmer from Berkshire who’s leading an initiative with the Berkshire, Berkshire & Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust to establish a zone within which the use of chemicals is eradicated.
