Making Even More Space for Nature

Sir John Lawton

John Lawton reflects on the legacy of the Making Space for Nature review in this thought provoking presentation. His presentation reflects on the establishment of Nature Improvement Areas to create ecological networks in England in landscapes where nature and people closely interact. It considers landscape-scale rewilding, including the ecosystem changes that have taken place in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. He summarises the range of landscape-scale interventions that could be considered in different landscapes and sets out an ambitious vision for the future of landscape-scale conservation for people and wildlife.
