Charles Burrell Wilding talk at Trelowarren

Wilding: the return of nature to the British Landscape


Friday November 16th 2018 at Trelowarren, talk commences at 6.30pm sharp and will be followed by drinks and nibbles


We are delighted to announce that our speaker for the CRSP winter lecture this year is renowned rewilding practitioner Sir Charles Burrell.


Charles is best known for having taken his family’s 3,500 acre Knepp Castle estate through an extensive wilding process, and now chairs Rewilding Britain.


Tickets are £35 per head and includes drinks and nibbles. We expect the event to sell out so book your tickets using the link below.


The talk will start at 6.30 sharp and will be followed by drinks and nibbles. Dress code is casual or smart casual.


Charles’ decision to move into nature conservation was taken in 1999, having attempted for 17 years to make the Estate's arable and dairy enterprises profitable. The Estate was ill-suited to compete with modern intensive farming and Charles was promted to look at a more naturalistic method of land management when in 2000, he received Countryside Stewardship funding to restore 350 acres around the castle that had been under the plough since the Second World War.


Further inspired by a visit to the Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve in the Netherlands in 2002 and the work of pioneering Dutch ecologist Dr Frans Vera, Burrell set about establishing a 'hands-off', process-led, naturalistic grazing system across the entire Estate using free-roaming herds of old English longhorns, Exmoor ponies and Tamworth pigs as proxies for the aurochs, tarpan and wild boar that would once have roamed the British countryside.


The Knepp Wildland Project has seen huge wildlife successes.. Today headline species include nightingales, turtle doves and purple emperor butterflies. Knepp now has all five UK species of owls and 13 out of the UK's 17 species of bats.


The Knepp Wildland experiment has become an enterprise of considerable influence, informing ideas about the future of nature conservation and the provision of ecosystem services such as soil restoration, biodiversity, water purification, flood mitigation, carbon sequestration, human health and recreation.

Fineran Bodygrip trap

We are pleased to announce that the CRSP designed Trap Boxes we use in the field for grey squirrel removal are now available to buy.

The trap boxes are produced by Fourteenacre Traps to a design devised by our trapper, David Fineran. The traps come with a specially designed tree-mountable box which guides grey squirrels into the Bodygrip trap. Bodygrip traps are licenced for UK use for grey squirrel control. Baited with hazelnuts these boxes are very attractive to grey squirrels but once installed in a tree appear like a bird or bat box to passers by.
