Our work is structured around three themes:
People – participation in wilding / re-wilding / nature friendly land management.
Providing advice, techniques and help to projects, organisations and businesses that want to get people properly engaged and involved in wilding/re-wilding/nature friendly land management.
Product – nature-friendly business
Working with agencies, organisations and projects to map the nature-friendly businesses operating in their area, and to understand more about how the local nature-based business economy works and what can be done to make it stronger.
Place – nature-friendly landscape
Working with the individuals, projects, organisations and businesses which are delivering re-wilding/wilding/nature–friendly land management, bringing in our years of technical ecological and natural resource management knowledge to supplement and strengthen their own specialist knowledge and experience, with our particular focus on stakeholder engagement and nature-friendly business.
We do this in the following ways:
We are trialling a new tool to enable businesses and organisations to benchmark the way in which they are nature-friendly, and to give pointers on how to improve. The Nearly Wild Nature Diamond uses a variety of criteria that we have developed, which will be further refined as a result of the current trials.
