This NatureScot new report released 1 April 2022, examines what lessons can be learned from large-scale nature restoration and rewilding projects in Scotland and beyond. Environmental benefits identified included habitat creation and connection at large-scale; carbon capture and storage through woodland regeneration, tree planting and peatland restoration; flood management; and water quality improvements.

Additional benefits included opportunities for new green jobs, educational programmes, nature-based tourism, local investment, and volunteering.

The report and case studies may be of value to secondary and tertiary students studying Environmental science and similar subjects.
