Its groundbreaking application across seven of Rewilding Europe’s operational areas – which has just been detailed in a new scientific paper – has revealed both positive impact and challenges to upscaling.
Part of the Bamff Estate in Scotland, the Bamff Wildland initiative is working to create a wilder, more biodiverse landscape governed by natural processes. European Rewilding Network membership will help the family-oriented rewilding team realise their vision.
