OUR STORY

BECOMING
GLOBAL REWILDING EXPERTS

From a family-run business to global rewilding experts driven by purpose.

By building a tenacious team fuelled by a desire to innovate and collaborate, we aim to enact positive change.

Working with other pioneers in the field, we forge our own path

We deliver practical solutions using a technology-led approach to achieve sustainable development.

Truly visionary.

We have developed a true vision, naturally aligned with market, sector and environmental forces; one that is agile enough to guide us to achieve our purpose to accelerate rewilding on a global scale.

Expertise with impact.

We are the UK’s longest-standing ecological contractor, and the first business to set rewilding as a company purpose.

Our aim is to help environmentally sustainable organisations to restore nature and set achievable visions; to deliver real-world results and adopt technologies that measure and reward success.

To enable this, we continually aspire to innovate powerful solutions that help accelerate rewilding and drive positive nature restoration at a global scale.

We innovate powerful solutions to accelerate rewilding and enable nature recovery at global scale

Rewilding offers us a message of hope of what can be achieved.

Rewilding is an innovative and inspirational way of restoring nature. The rewilding narrative shows us that ecosystems can be restored under the right conditions, that together with nature as an asset we can create a more sustainable future. 

It aims to connect people and nature, and dynamically integrate the way we live together. Ecosulis is driven by the belief that by doing this, we can not only benefit people, planet, and progress. 

As global attitudes to nature conservation, recovery, and protection also evolve, we want to take hold of this opportunity to restore nature in a way that is economically viable and nature-based.
