Wild Ken Hill: A vision for the future
With Lloyd Park – Conservation Leader & Ecologist
19:30 Wednesday 25th August 2021
FREE OF CHARGE
In this webinar Lloyd shares how Wild Ken Hill is returning land to nature and farming sustainably in coastal West Norfolk through a unique and innovative combination of re-wilding, regenerative farming and traditional conservation practices working side by side to fight climate change, boost biodiversity, grow healthy food and engage the community.
“With biodiversity loss and climate change accelerating, I believe that now more than ever before we have a duty to restore and protect our natural heritage through innovative thinking and pioneering projects which break the mould of long-established conservation practice and strike a better balance for nature, traditional land use and the benefit of our diverse communities – now and for generations to come.
It is with this in mind that I was inspired by Wild Ken Hill’s forward thinking and bold approach in tackling the challenges currently faced by land managers and conservationists alike, admirably bringing together agricultural and conservation practices, rewilding the landscape and restoring lost species to their rightful place in the ecosystem, whilst simultaneously helping mitigate climate change.
With this unique vision the potential this project has for delivering a better equilibrium for biodiversity and sustainable food production is exciting in itself, but what also stands out to me is its potential to change perceptions in both the agricultural and conservation communities and beyond, inspire more collaborative working and demonstrate that conservation, agriculture and traditional land management can happily coexist. It is a privilege to be a part of the team bringing this unique vision to life, and to be able to help make a difference to the future of our natural heritage in the UK in such a way.”
