Position statement



Land management and conservation study, 2017

This position statement sets out the Woodland Trust’s stance on rewilding which calls for large expanses of land to be set aside for nature.

It builds on the idea that natural processes should be left to take their course without deliberate intervention while restoring missing species and parts of the landscape to re-establish natural processes.

The paper explains how rewilding works and why it is important.
