In the UK's newest national park, the restoration of landscapes and wildlife populations is generating a range of benefits.    

 

Boosting resilience

The South Downs are often referred to as the lungs of southeast England - a bucolic swathe of greenery edged by an iconic coastal margin. Gently undulating hills, dazzling chalk cliffs, wildflower-filled ancient woodlands - the stunning landscapes of Sussex and Hampshire are what attract so many people to live and visit.

The Ecosulis Tech Challenge, which closed on April 5, generated a number of interesting submissions encompassing a wide range of rewilding-related technologies. While the quality and potential of these submissions was high, the Ecosulis judging panel felt that five of the most promising entries would benefit from further development. The panel has now provided feedback, with the five entries to be judged again - and the winner announced - in the early summer.

Climate change will have a range of significant impacts on people, as well as our planet. It will also change our biodiversity and natural processes globally. Changes in climate and weather, and rising temperatures will change our ecosystems and species beyond recognition. In many cases, wildlife will need to commute north or to habitats higher in elevation to survive this change, and we will see more exotic species reaching our shores to adapt to the change in conditions and habitat types.
