Rewilding in the UK: What is it and why is it Important?

Recommended Posts

Before the industrial revolution, much of the UK was wild and unkempt; home to many native species that have long since disappeared and many more that are now in rapid decline.

Woods and forests haven't seen a sharp decline over the past years.  Been steadily increasing since 1919!

Same woods % now as 1350 in England? Suppose majority of deforestation % happend with stone axes in the neolithic. 🙂
