The Rewilding Britain Challenge Fund is now open for applications. This major fund of up to £100,000 will be awarded to the rewilding project which shows the maximum potential to work with others to scale up rewilding on land or at sea. Rewilding Britain are looking for diverse groups (landowners, sea-users, organisations, communities, businesses etc) who want to work together to develop innovative models to upscale rewilding.Find out more here: fund’s theme is ‘Think Big, Act Wild’, so they expect the total project area of the project to be at least 1,000ha/10km2, the majority of which is contiguous and proposed for rewilding.Within this, they will prioritise those which restore and reinstate natural processes, habitats and missing species to the maximum extent across land, sea or both.They are particularly interested in community-led/co-designed approaches to rewilding which bring lasting social, economic and ecological benefits for local communities.Successful projects will need to be eligible to join the Rewilding Network and must be prepared to share knowledge and experiences in an accessible way.The deadline for expression of interest is 12 October.The fund cannot finance capital works or land purchase.
