Rewilding Britain are right to call for a more joined-up approach to nature recovery, but we must utilise the skills and experience of those managing our countryside (Call for land to be wildlife corridors, 29 October). We have seen what can be achieved by conservationists working together on a landscape scale; planting hedges, digging ponds and managing woodlands so that threatened birds, bees and other wildlife can thrive. Real success can be achieved if we encourage more farmers, not fewer, to actively manage their land for wildlife.

Stand up for a more positive approach to conservation by signing the Working for Wildlife pledge
We believe the UK urgently needs a more positive approach to conservation, one that empowers land managers to make a long-term commitment to conservation and embrace the views of the local community.
If you agree, please sign our pledge calling for conservationists across the UK to work together with all those that manage our countryside.
