heal the land | heal nature | heal ourselves
Heal is raising money to buy land in England and rewild it.
We're giving land back to nature, forever.
Why do we need rewilding?
Ours is one of the most nature-depleted countries, ranking 189th in the world for biodiversity
of UK animal species are in decline
1 in 10
UK species are threatened with extinction
species have gone extinct in the UK since the 1500s
Heal is committed to becoming the UK's first national rewilding landowner. By rewilding land across England, our work will deliver three major benefits to society:
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
Our long-term plan
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
