Rewilding on Knepp Estate: an interview with Charlie Burrell


13 October, 2020

Episode notes

As the coronavirus pandemic and climate crisis grab the headlines, the alarming rate of nature loss in the UK and the impact it is having is slipping under the radar. There are few people in the UK who have done more to put this right than Charlie Burrell.

The former chair of the charity Rewilding Britain and owner of Knepp estate, Charlie tells Belinda Gordon how removing fencing, introducing deer, Longhorn cattle, Exmoor ponies and Tamworth pigs has allowed nature to take over this once intensively farmed land with incredible results. They discuss how this example can offer inspiration and lessons for new ways of managing land across the country, to reverse nature loss in a way that’s also better for people.
