Restoring 15 locally-extinct animal species to rewild Great Britain

A new national organisation called Rewilding Britain launches on Wednesday with the aim of reversing centuries of ecological damage by returning species and habitats to the British countryside that have been absent for decades and sometimes much longer.

In the process, it hopes to recharge the natural world with wonder and help people to reconnect with it. Here are some of the species that have been lost to our countryside but may yet return:

  • Dalmatian Pelican
  • Bluefin Tuna
  • Grey Whale
  • Lynx
  • Beaver
  • Boar
  • Wolf
  • Common Crane
  • Eagle Owl
  • Pine Marten
  • Goshawk
  • Night Heron
  • Sturgeon
  • White Stork
  • White-tailed Eagle
