won't move along the continuum toward rewilding-max while it remains (to all intents and purposes) a farm extracting "produce" from domestic livestock and managed with predetermined outcomes (i.e. wood pasture) in mind. It is a compromise. 2/2

I launched a manifesto for Britain in 2003 based on the principles that were developed over the 90s by the originators of the term in The Wildlands Project. I am in contact today with a number of those key people. Who is the highjacker? You?

An interesting debate. I think we all agree with the continuum model, rather there has to be boundaries along the line where starts and ends (see pic). Within those limits there are "flavours" or degrees of rewilding. is for example, rewilding-lite. 1/2

If its not true then its not rewilding. Higher level pattern is ensuring that core wild land areas & their interconnections are not put at risk by incompatible activity - hence buffers of compatible use lands & wildlife movement linkages where Permaculture has a place

My timeline is still filling up with Welsh speakers arguing over whether there is a Welsh word for and if so what it is.

It could be argued that the definition of has already been hijaked & diluted by various organisations and individuals to suit their own agendas. Is rewilding about increasing biodiversity? More about restoring fully functioning ecosystems isn't it?

Alas, you're still missing the higher level pattern. It's not true but let's leave it there for now.

The extermination of wolves in the 1700s resulted in too many deer. Now there are about about 400,000 red deer in Scotland. The landscape is over-grazed, devoid of any life. Reintroducing wolves would control the deer population and allow trees to grow

A video of the snipe bobbing and foraging through the reeds. Snipe have been in decline since the 70's due to draining of farmland and reduction in suitable habitat & prey availability. Maybe it's time we reintroduce the beaver...

There’ll be etymological sources on these questions; I read somewhere fir in many biospheres it’s not enough to abandon forests; you also have to build back the paths & roads b/c they’re hard to cross, thus artificially cut populations & decrease biological .

Another great example of how vital predators are to the ecosystem they inhabit. Compelling evidence that Mountain Lions are ecosystem engineers through carcass dispersal. via
