Nature recovery corridors are essential for our landscapes to repair. Without them, we cannot forge connections for our fragmented wildlife. Our initial goal is to create a nationally significant wildlife corridor, 50 miles in length, from the Ashdown Forest, via Knepp, to the kelp forests off the Sussex coast.

Buffered by regenerative and wildlife-friendly food production we aim to create 10,000 hectares of largely contiguous space so that wildlife can travel through the landscape easily. This will be supported by fresh investment in Sussex-wide nature recovery networks, creating corridors of action between groups and projects from Wealden forests to kelp forests, rewilded gardens to farm hedgerows, restored rivers to wild beaches, and from butterfly banks to wildflower verges.

As part of our commitment to working in the open, we will document and share the process in detail so that other regions can adopt and adapt the methodology for corridors around the country.

About the charity

The Knepp Wildland Foundation was founded to galvanise nature recovery across Sussex and beyond. We use evidence, knowledge and inspiration from the pioneering work of Knepp to support rewilding at scale, with a particular focus on communities, corridors and the next generation of rewilders.
