Rewilding in Gloucestershire
Rewilding takes many different shapes and sizes. While some would have you believe that rewilding is all about the reintroduction of megafauna, the reality is far more nuanced than that. Rewilding is a philosophy, at the heart of which lies a belief in co-existence with wildlife and respect for the eco-system in which we play an integral part and rely upon.
The Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust runs several exceptional nature reserves where regeneration of the landscape and protection of endemic species is key to their efforts.
