The world's first rewilding centre opens

Words by Abi Scaife

The world’s first rewilding centre has opened in Scotland.

Amazing! Tell me more!

Charity Trees for Life has opened the world’s first rewilding centre - near Loch Ness, in the Scottish highlands.

If you're not sure what rewilding is, Smiley News has written a great article explaining all the ins and outs!

The Dundreggan Rewilding Centre in Glenmoriston is 10,000 acres of restoration, a sanctuary for nature while Trees for Life helps to care for the Caledonian forest and its wildlife.

What else?

The focus of the rewilding centre isn’t just nature and wildlife - it’s people, too. The Dundreggan Rewilding Centre is free-to-access, thanks to generous donors, helping to reconnect people and nature.

You will be able visit year-round to see what the centre is doing, and to see how rewilding benefits different species of plants and animals.

The centre will open to the public on Saturday 15 April with a celebratory weekend of special events and activities.
