Since writing Rebirding, Ben has continued to advocate for accelerating the process of returning native species where habitat is suitable.
He is currently engaged with a working group on Dalmatian Pelicans as well as general reintroduction legislation.
Whilst a staunch advocate of ecosystem restoration in suitable large areas of the UK,
Ben also takes a keen interest in campaigns to save old orchards and integrate species like beavers into the farmed environment, as well as blending rewilded areas into farmed ones.
Ben is a recognised field leader in helping landowners restore nature at scale, in both the farmed and wilder landscapes of the UK.
He now works across the UK, turning this vision into a reality alongside landowners, farmers and estate managers.
