Today marks the two year anniversary of Rebirding, Benedict Macdonald's visionary and inspiring manifesto for restoring Britain's wildlife, rewilding its species and restoring rural jobs.
Praise for Rebirding
"This is a wonderful book, visionary, illuminating and fascinating. It will help accelerate the rewilding revolution now beginning in Britain."
"Rebirding is beautifully written, based on deep, personal experience and a genuine love of the subject. It also benefits from the heady enthusiasm of youth. You may not have come across Ben Macdonald before now; but believe me, you will hear a lot more from him in the future."
"Having read a number of the recent books about rewilding, I was tempted to think 'Oh blimey, not another one!'. I am now tempted to say 'they left the best till last…' Ben covers history, science, traditions, conservation and reintroduction, all with those most vital elements - knowledge and enthusiasm."
"Beautifully written, thoughtful and provocative"
—Martin Harper, Conservation Director, RSPB
"This is a stimulating and important book, beautifully written and well researched… It provides a compelling vision for the future."
—Carl Jones, Chief Scientist, Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust
"A well researched and more importantly a well-written book about rewilding... One that every conservationist should read."
—Paul Cheney, Halfman, Halfboo
"Phenomenal and important."
—Chris Packham, Waterstones Favourite Reads of 2020
