#FGFStory: Forget Gold and Fine Art: Investors are Putting their Money into Rewilding the Land
The UK’s fascination with re-wilding has taken a corporate turn, as green investment companies look to generate long-term capital appreciation for investors, through re-wilding programs and the jobs they create.

Working in three areas of the UK, The Real Wild Estates Company (RWE) hopes to create 100,000 acres of re-wilded country by 2030, in traditional southern English estate country, the Scottish Highlands, and the North English Moors.
