Rewilding in Ireland with Randal Plunkett
Play • 26 min

In this episode we sit down with Randal Plunkett, owner of the beautiful Dunsany Estate, home to Ireland's largest rewilding project. Since 2014 Randall has been allowing the 1600 acre estate to rewild: by stopping the grazing of cattle or sheep and the growing of crops, nature is given space to flourish and functioning ecosystems are restored. As a result he has seen a huge increase in the populations of birds, mammals and insects, including the return of teh Corncrake, Woodpecker, Red Kite and Pine Marten!
