 About Heal 

Our purpose

Heal is raising money to buy land in the English lowlands and rewild it.

We're giving land back to nature, forever.

 What does Heal 

 mean by 'rewilding'? 

We mean giving nature the breathing space it needs to heal.

We mean natural regeneration of trees, plants and wildflowers.

We mean creating space where animals can live freely and vulnerable species can recover.

 

A new national rewilding charity

Heal is committed to becoming the UK's first national rewilding landowner

We are creating new, species-rich havens to heal the land, heal nature and heal ourselves

How will Heal fund rewilding?

Heal will mobilise funding from multiple sources to buy land for rewilding. 

 

Our sites will be self-supporting, generating revenue from eco-tourism , educational courses, events and more. We will create new jobs and bring economic benefit to local communities.

 Why rewild the lowlands?

Currently, lots of rewilding is happening in the uplands where very few people live

By 2050, 70% of us will be living in urban areas

By rewilding the lowlands, we are making rewilding more inclusive and accessible to people living in towns and cities
