Editorial Reviews


What I really love about this book is that it doesn't just go over the same tired and familiar issues. Instead, it offers a revolutionary new approach. This not only could work, but needs to succeed, if we are to stop fiddling at the margins and do something that actually restores Britain's birds and wildlife to their rightful place at the centre of our nation, culture and society.

Rebirding also offers a compelling vision: of a richer and healthier Britain, with flocks of pelicans drifting over our wetlands, wild cats and capercaillies returning to our increasingly wooded hunting estates, and wildlife safaris to watch lynx and golden eagles in Snowdonia - all within a generation.

Not least, Rebirding is beautifully written, based on deep, personal experience and a genuine love of the subject. It also benefits from the heady enthusiasm of youth. You may not have come across Ben Macdonald before now; but believe me, you will hear a lot more from him in the future. - Stephen Moss

This is a wonderful book, visionary, illuminating and fascinating. It will help accelerate the rewilding revolution now beginning in Britain. - George Monbiot

About the Author

Benedict Macdonald is a conservation writer, field director in wildlife television, and a keen naturalist; passionate about restoring Britain's wildlife, pelicans included, in his lifetime.

During his extensive global travel experience, Benedict has found inspiring examples of why desecrating our country's ecosystems is both entirely avoidable and against the national interest. This book is his attempt to ensure that this generation, for the first time in thousands of years, leaves Britain's wildlife better off, not worse, than the generation before – for wildlife and people alike.

Benedict is a long-time writer for
Birdwatching magazine, as well as a contributor to the RSPB Nature's Home and BBC Wildlife. He has been fortunate to work on TV series for the BBC and Netflix – most notably the grasslands and jungles programmes of Sir David Attenborough's conservation series Our Planet: broadcast worldwide on Netflix in April 2019.

Benedict Macdonald is a British naturalist, conservationist, writer and producer. He currently works as Head of Nature Restoration for Real Wild Estates, whilst pursuing a range of nature restoration projects and books in the UK.

Having studied wildlife since a very early age, he pursued a career in natural history film-making and has worked on series including The One Show, Springwatch, The Hunt and as a field director for the Emmy-award winning Our Planet; a conservation series narrated by Sir David Attenborough, which premiered on Netflix in 2019.

As a writer, his first book, 'Rebirding', highlighted the need for mass-scale nature restoration across the UK, and was the winner of the Richard Jefferies Prize & inaugural winner of the Wainwright Conservation Prize 2020. His second book, 'Orchard: A Year in England's Eden', co-written with Nicholas Gates, was published by Harper Collins in August 2020 and won the Richard Jefferies Prize for the second year in a row. His third book, 'Cornerstones', is released in July 2022.

As a conservationist, Ben has remained at the forefront of public discourse on rewilding, nature restoration, regenerative farming and the reintroduction of lost species to the UK. Ben studied at Christ Church, Oxford.
