Re-wilding event in Nidderdale: what is it and how could it help tackle climate change?

Published by The Stray FM News Team at 4:39pm 22nd May 2019.

What is re-wilding and how could it change Nidderdale?

Should there be bears? Or, is re-wilding more about trees and land use than large, exotic animals?

  • An event in Nidderdale this evening is set to explore what "re-wilding" could look like in the area
  • Experts will be on hand to answer questions
  • It's being held at Nidderdale High School this evening, from 7-8.30pm

These are among questions residents and children from Nidderdale High School will be posing to experts this evening at a Question-Time style event.

Organised by Paul Howard, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, the event is designed to explore how re-wilding could help with flood management, bio-diversity and climate change in Nidderdale.

Paul said:

"This topic relates to very serious issues that we must all confront.

"Climate change is something that everyone is aware of now - bio-diversity loss, perhaps less so - although we do hear stories about the decline in bees and the decline in other insects.

"The first step is to talk about it, then if people understand why it's important, we can consider doing something about it."

Academics, local land-users and owners, and representatives from the RSPB and the Yorkshire Peat Partnership will be on hand to lead the discussion.

The event is being held at Nidderdale High School from 7-8.30pm tonight (Wednesday 22 May).

Admission is free and refreshments will be available.
