Rebirding: Restoring Britain’s Wildlife
Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: Pelagic Publishing
The UK is undergoing a mass extinction of birds and wildlife after two centuries of intensification. Many books lament the decline of British wildlife – this is the first to map out how this could be turned around, economically and in the national interest. We have all the space we need for nature; now, at last, it’s time to put it to good use.
WINNER OF THE WAINWRIGHT PRIZE FOR WRITING ON GLOBAL CONSERVATION Winner of the Richard Jefferies Society and White Horse Book Shop Literary Prize ‘splendid’ -The Guardian ‘visionary’ -New Statesman Britain has all the space it needs for an epic return of its wildlife. Only six percent of our country is built upon. Contrary to popular myth, large areas of our countryside are not productively farmed but remain deserts of opportunity for both wildlife and jobs. It is time to turn things around. Praised as ‘visionary’ by conservationists and landowners alike, Rebirding sets out a compelling manifesto for restoring Britain’s wildlife, rewilding its species and restoring rural jobs – to the benefit of all.
