West Norfolk nature project leads the way on World Rewilding Day




The Wild Ken Hill project at Heacham has been chosen to feature in a national on-line event to mark World Rewilding Day, on Saturday.

Dominic Buscall, project manager, is one of two key speakers from the eastern counties who will talk about their missions to give land back to nature.

The event is being hosted by Rewilding Britain between 10.30am and noon, on Saturday, March 20.

Wild Ken Hill was set up about two years ago on 1500 acres of farmland between Heacham and Snettisham with wild cattle, ponies, pigs and beavers introduced to support nature's recovery alongside regenerative agriculture.

The project’s mission is to demonstrate that land can be used to tackle climate change and improve air and water quality - while still producing high quality food.

As well as outlining the scheme and its progress, Dominic will talk about the recent public consultation on the possibility of re-establishing white-tailed eagles in Norfolk, and their ambitious plans to become an inspirational educational resource to many over the next few decades.

The event will also feature Sarah Smith, general manager of Wicken Fen, in Cambridgeshire.
