Heal Rewilding is a registered UK charity aiming to tackle the nature and climate crises while creating new jobs and work for local businesses. Lending from Triodos helped it to acquire its first landholding of 460 acres in Somerset in 2023 to create a new nature reserve. The charity expects early benefits of rewilding to include an increase in insect numbers, growth of plants, including tree saplings and a greater abundance and diversity of species. The Somerset project is the first in a series of nature reserves it plans to establish in every English county.
