We are experienced upland ecologists involved in a charity rewilding 4000Ha of the Scottish uplands. More land must be given back to nature without any expectation of anything directly for ourselves.

Les Hughes 31st October 2020

We spend a couple of weeks a year in Asturias and have seen some amazing wildlife and meet some wonderful people there. Good luck with your project!

Hilary Duffield 31st October 2020

I'm so happy to see that you have reached the 20.000 threshold. More than ever before, we need to get out there and create networks of people-powered habitats wherever we can - both in our own gardens and by banding together to protect and nurture sites like this. Looking forward very much to coming to visit Wild Finca one day.

Thank you for everything you're doing. We visited Asturias recently and think it is a very special place. Good luck and hope to visit one day.

Luke, I wish you every success in this crucial rewilding project, I'm so saddened to see the wild spaces we continue to lose across the UK and Europe. I only hope enough people get behind this..
