Summary

* Draws on experiences from the US, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and France to offer a revolutionary new agenda for wildland management and "rewilding" of lost habitats * Written in an engaging and easy-to-read style for a range of nature enthusiasts, students, and conservation and land management professionals * Full color maps and photographs After decades of operating off-the-back-foot and protecting and conserving nature perceived as under threat, conservationists are becoming proactive and creative in the face of habitat loss, agricultural intensification and climate change. "Beyond Conservation" offers a revolutionary agenda for both managing existing wildlands in Britain and for expanding and connecting such lands. Central to this strategy is the imperative to "rewild" or restore and repair damaged habitat and ecosystems, promote existing biodiversity and reintroduce vanished plant and animal species, while working to reconcile human needs and livelihoods and the needs of nature.
