FACT: Gardens cover an area more than twice the size of all our national nature reserves.
FACT: One in seven of our wildlife species are heading for extinction and half are in decline.
FACT: 46% of Europe has tree cover compared with only 13% in the UK
While decisions are being made across Britain by members of the Rewilding Network about rewilding their land, as gardeners, home-owners, garden designers and landscapers, the decisions we make now can make a massive difference.
If every garden in Britain was made just a little bit wilder, more carbon could be absorbed, biodiversity increased and the impacts of climate change, like flooding, reduced.
That’s got to be a good reason to go a bit wild, so what can you do?
