The Real Wild Estates Company is delighted to announce that we are working with Yan and Camilla Swiderski on their farm, Hamatethy, beside Bodmin Moor in North Cornwall.
With both beavers and a white stork breeding programmes on their 750-acre landscape, and some precious and rare Atlantic rainforest along the Camel river, Yan and Camilla have now decided on a 15-year ecological restoration vision, developed in conjunction with myself, as Head of Nature Restoration for RWE. This includes creating mosaic wood-pastures, wetlands restoration, naturalistic grazing, a wild orchard and potential species reintroductions in the 5-10 year period. Plans to open up access to visitors and nature lovers are in the pipeline, with their local community’s support and help.
Real Wild Estates are privileged to have the opportunity to work with the visionaries owners of Hamatethy, and look forward to documenting the results over the coming months and years.
