#WATWB April 2021 – Rewilding Scotland

As each month comes along there seems to be a scurrying to find a post. It’s like time is getting away from us. Yet, here we are.

The co-host method has undergone a transformation of sorts and our two generous co-hosts this series are: Belinda Witzenhausen and Sylvia McGrath.

Here is a link for this time around.

It’s about “rewilding” in Scotland. I know, some of us still think Scotland is a little wild – in a good way! But this is about the natural ecological balance in this beautiful country.

Euronews tells us that:

Rewilding has become an increasingly popular movement in Scotland over the last few years. Politicians are being called on by the Scottish Rewilding Alliance (SWA) to create policies that would see the country become the world’s first “rewilding nation”.’

We find it’s not just the government though.

The Scottish public is behind the idea too. Last year the SWA commissioned a poll across Scotland which found widespread support for the principle of rewilding. More than three-quarters of people who expressed an opinion backed the concept, ten times as many as those who objected to it.

Let’s hope that they have some success. There are also some videos available on Youtube by searching “rewilding Scotland“, such as this one.

  1. Hi Simon – there’s lots going on here … restoring peat bogs, letting beavers roam the rivers, planting lots of trees … and many more people interested in their environment … great post for #WATWB – all the best – Hilary

  2. That sounds like a great effort. Let the wildlife take back what was theirs. I’d like to see more of that in the US. We keep developing habitat and pushing animals farther out.

    1. I saw the story also about the wolves in Yellowstone, Dan. I guess those scenarios are less widespread than is ideal. As you say, development continues.

  3. What a wonderful initiative, I have heard a bit about this before and I think it is something that should be looked at worldwide. After years of depleting natural habitats it would be wonderful to see the land and its creatures treated with respect. Thanks so much for sharing this and for being a part of #WATWB. Stay safe, be well and have a great week!😊
