Wolf rewilding projects have been successfully implemented across the world – so what is holding us back in the UK? Derek Gow, Alistair Driver and Richard Morley will delve into the history of the wolf in Britain, and what rewilding the wolf might look on these shores. The lost history, stories and myths that surround this extraordinary animal have meant that it is often misunderstood and maligned, making it harder than ever to discuss its return. Looking at current rewilding projects in the UK, as well as Wolf reintroduction projects in Europe and elsewhere, important lessons can be learnt about how society at large can change its relationship to this animal, and eventually pave the way for its return.
Following the discussion there will be chance for an audience Q&A, as well as a book signing for Derek Gow’s new book Hunt for the Shadow Wolf.
