How to Bring Wilderness Back to Britain | Rewilding UK

In the past, the UK was full of wilderness. It was home to brown bears, lynx and wolves, all of which are now extinct in the country. ↠Subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/c/TerraMaterO… Instead, around 70% of the UK’s land area is currently used for agriculture, which has decimated large parts of the ecosystem. Is the UK’s land area being used effectively? And, on an island so overpopulated by humans, might it be possible for a huge rewilding movement to restore those lost ecosystems? We follow rewilding initiatives across the UK to learn how various approaches to rewilding the British Isles work, and find out whether there could soon be wolves in the Scottish Highlands again… Thanks for watching and, while you’re here, don’t forget to subscribe to our channel and sign up for alerts to be the first to hear about other important conservation topics!
