Rewilding aims to restore natural ecosystems using keystone species in a way that benefits wildlife and people. Can rewilding really be win-win for wildlife and landowners? What are the practical, political and economic risks? How can it be planned and implemented to maximise the benefits? These questions and more will be tackled during a one day conference jointly hosted by the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology (DICE) and Wildwood Trust on Tuesday 12th September, 2017.

The programme will comprise presentations and discussions from across the rewilding stakeholder community and will be arranged around three key themes: (1) Species and rewilding; (2) Landscapes and rewilding; and (3) Political and cultural aspects of rewilding.

The full programme of the event can be found here.
