heal the land | heal nature | heal ourselves
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
Heal launched on 30 March 2020 to raise money, buy land in England and rewild it
Raise £7 million to acquire Heal's foundation site, Heal South, in the south of England
Rewild Heal's foundation site, renovate buildings and open all visitor facilities
Acquire and rewild a second Heal site in a northern English county
Acquire and rewild multiple Heal sites until there is one in every English county
What kind of land is Heal looking for?
Land that, initially, hosts a poor diversity and abundance of wild animals and plants
Land 500+ acres in size to provide space for roaming cattle, pigs, ponies and deer
Land with buildings that can be converted to create spaces for public engagement
Land that is within one hour's travel from nearby large urban areas by public transport
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
