Two exciting developments over the last month. For those of us fascinated by wildness in the UK, it has been wonderful to see the new Wild Isles series on the BBC.
There can be the temptation to think of 'wildness' as something that happens far away. It is easy to miss what is close to our doorsteps. And the potential for this wildness to become a more abundant and positive part of our lives.
A superb accompanying website shows ways to take action -> www.saveourwildisles.org.uk. It's great to see restoration projects - like what we do at Wild Mosaic - given such prominence.
The 'People's Plan for Nature' is "a vision for the future of nature, and the actions we must all take to protect and renew it".
It was initiated by the RSPB, WWF and National Trust (who also together part funded Wild Isles). And then members of the public have led this. From contributing over 30,000 responses to questions on what we want our relationship with nature to be. To forming an assembly to discuss and shape the details of the plan. It again shows the desire and enthusiasm to see a wilder UK. You can learn more and be part of shaping this further here - https://peoplesplanfornature.org/.
