To avoid a climate emergency we need to act fast. Rewilding and other natural climate solutions can draw millions of tonnes of CO2 out of the air through restoring and protecting our living systems. We call on the UK government to make a bold financial and political commitment to nature's recovery.
We need to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C to avoid the catastrophic effects of climate breakdown. To do this we need both to reduce carbon emissions and to remove carbon from the atmosphere. By drawing down carbon, nature's recovery can help us reach net carbon zero.
Rewilding is vital for our wildlife and good for farmers says Alastair Driver of Rewilding Britain, who makes an impassioned argument in support of rewilding in our latest podcast episode.

The director of Rewilding Britain, Alistair Driver, has made a plea to the natural flood management sector to work more closely together with his organisation on projects in England and Wales' national parks that bring benefits to both biodiversity and flood risk management.
