Rewilding is letting nature run wild – trying to restore some natural processes into the landscape so that nature is functioning fully and properly on its own.
In Knepp Castle, in southern England a revolution is taking place. In 2001, Isabella Tree and Charlie Burrell decided to let nature take over their 3,500-acre estate previously used as farm land. Species like purple emperor butterflies and nightingales which have not been sighted for a generation returned, the soil recovered from decades of fertiliser overuse, and natural river systems were restored.
That’s what rewilding is; lettering nature return to its natural state.
