It's been said many times that rewilding land & reintroductions of species is key to saving biodiversity & assisting with the battle of climate change. One man that knows not only the info but the challenges of the work itself is ecologist, reintroduction specialist, farmer & author of Bringing Back The Beaver, Derek Gow.
I feel pumped after every chat I do for Into The Wild however this conversation with Derek left me feeling that tad bit more motivated. From chats about what rewilding is to how it is done & with what species, to the more complex points of what we need to be careful about & the big question for me, we will ever have wolves back? Derek gives some great detail in this show & I am super excited to bring it to you all.
