Is wildlife restoration about to become big business?

Rewilding in Britain has come a long way since the term was popularised by the Guardian columnist George Monbiot in his 2013 book Feral. Since then, there has been a huge amount of publicity for Knepp, the estate in West Sussex that has been left to return to nature for two decades, while beavers – one of the species most closely associated with rewilding – are once again damming rivers in England and Scotland after an absence of hundreds of years.
