Knepp Wildland – is wilding good for wildlife?
Tuesday February 18 @ 7:45 pm - 9:30 pm
Since 2001, most of the historic Knepp Estate, once intensively farmed, has become a rewilding project where grazing animals drive ecological succession to ‘free’ nature. Rare species like turtle doves and purple emperor butterflies are now breeding; and common species numbers are rocketing. Is this the way forwards for many more areas of the UK?
