Rewilding in Devon: what does it look like? What is happening? What are we hoping to achieve?
About this Event
Join us for a fascinating talk by DWT Director of Conservation, Pete Burgess.
Rewilding Devon will explore how our landscapes in Devon have changed over the millennia, from a time when humans had no more impact on the landscape than the animals we preyed upon, through the agricultural and industrial revolutions, to the present day. We are now at a turning point in history, one where we need to reinvigorate natural processes, enabling wildlife to thrive and create new wilder landscapes. This presentation will reveal which natural processes shape our landscapes today and what which would have been much more dominant in the past.
Turning to today we ask what might ‘rewilded’ landscapes look like and how can we ensure land is healthy and productive – not just for food and resources but also for all life support systems.
