Re-wilding

Wild bison to return to UK for first time in 6,000 years

Yanar i'm all for stuff like this, I think it's brilliant. Same with the beavers being re-introduced in Devon. But my main issue with the re-wilding, is how slow it is. Do they really think that introducing a herd of four bison (three females), is going to affect the British countryside that much? It's not really going to create much biodiversity is it.

Same with the beavers. They introduced them claiming it was a research project to see if they would be beneficial, and the project would last five years. It's been five years, and despite only finding positive outcomes from it, their extending the research period for another five years. What's the point?

All this banging on about how depleted of wildlife the UK is, but the people in charge seem to be so weak willed about it. Oh no, we must only re-introduce four bison (bearing in mind female bison arnly have one bairn a year) as ramblers will be fuming that they can't ramble all awa the shop anymore.

There have been a few more controlled releases of beavers recently - including in Cumbria.
