"Restoring the Wild" by Roy Dennis tells the story of how the UK's reintroduction agenda is bringing the white-tailed sea eagle back from extinction after more than 200 years.

This seminal book offers an eye-opening insight into the complexities of reintroducing extinct animals to Britain and is an intimate portrait of these predators we so sorely need.

Wilding book cover
The Return of Nature to a British Farm
Isabella Tree - 2018-05-03
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Experience the stunning transformation of a farm into a flourishing wildland in Wilding by Isabella Tree. In the face of declining biodiversity, the author and her husband took a bold leap by allowing nature to take over their failing farmland. The introduction of free-roaming animals led to a dramatic increase in wildlife diversity and numbers. 'Knepp experiment' is a testament to how rewilding can revitalize degraded agricultural land and generate economic activity. Wilding offers an inspiring hope for restoring Britain's past with lush countryside and valuable lessons for all."
