Kent Wildlife Trust (partnered with the Wildwood Trust) have initial plans in place for a wilding project in the West Blean Woods (Kent, England). Which would involve Longhorn Cattle, Tamworth Pigs, European Bison and Wild Boar. A 255-hectare area would be used for the Longhorn Cattle and Tamworth Pigs, and a separate 55-hectare area would be used for European Bison and Wild Boar to graze also. There will be monitoring in place of the projects effects, where it aims to observe ecological impacts and interactions on the ecosystem. It is thought that this project will boost biological abundance and restore habitat structure. (Website links: Wilding the Blean Wilder Kent | Kent Wildlife Trust ) Side note: 1 hectare = 10,000 square metres. ________________ This project understandably would not happen overnight, but I am just intrigued as to whether many people knew about this. I personally think it would be fantastic to see how the biodiversity is adapted, through the introduction of those species in the area. What are other people's thoughts?
