The video above is of a talk given by George Monbiot- one of the Rewilding movement’s most vocal and well-informed supporters.  His thoughts encapsulate this relatively new concept and make a compelling case for the reintroduction of forgotten fauna into our wildernesses.  It is a hot topic just now in the United Kingdom.  I would personally relish the prospect of seeing the highlands of Scotland for instance reforested and welcome back wildlife such as Eurasian Lynx, Wolf, Wolverine and Wild Boar.  Just look at mainland Europe and the biodiversity of primeval forests in countries such as Croatia, Poland and Romania where the landscape has been allowed to naturally develop without human interference.
