Co-authored by Dr. Paul Jepson and Cain Blythe, "Rewilding: The Radical New Science of Ecological Recovery" is rapidly becoming one of the go-to books for those looking to learn more about the science of nature restoration.    



Co-authored by Ecosulis Nature Recovery Lead Dr. Paul Jepson and Ecosulis Managing Director Cain Blythe, "Rewilding: The Radical New Science of Ecological Recovery" is the first popular book on the groundbreaking science behind the restoration of wild nature. First published in July 2020 by Icon Books, almost 6000 copies have now been sold or distributed, while a follow-up illustrated version will be published by the end of this year.


The book has been well-received and already earned a wide range of glowing reviews. Isabella Tree, who co-founded Knepp Wildland with her husband Charlie Burrell and is author of the hugely successful book Wilding, described it as "A hugely useful and fascinating resume of rewilding - what it means, where it came from, why it's important and where it's going". Laura Battle, deputy books editor at the Financial Times, called it "compelling" and a "succinct and objective account" in an article published in August 2020. Stephen Moss, leading English natural historian, birder, author and television producer, said the book "makes a compelling case for the need to re-evaluate how we treat the planet and its natural resources".


The publication of the book has also led to a number of presentations on rewilding by the authors, helping the rewilding movement to generate further momentum and inspiring individuals, organisations and businesses to start their own rewilding journey. To date these presentations have reached an audience of more than 500 people. The book has also been distributed to all members of Rewilding Europe's rapidly growing European Rewilding Network.
