Who we are

We are a small group of dedicated wildlife enthusiasts who have happened to come together, and who are committed to restoring nature for the benefit of everyone.

Alasdair Cameron

Director of Somerset Wildlands CIC

Alasdair is an environmental campaigner with many years experience working on international wildlife trade, beaver reintroduction, climate change, conservation, investigations, energy and much else besides. His journey into practical rewilding began when he bought a few small fields in the Somerset Levels with the intention of ‘rewilding’ them – at least as much as is possible in a tiny area. This showed him the value that even small patches of land could have if left for nature, and inspired him to do more. You can read about that project at http://www.godneymarshes.com.

Peter Cooper

Ecological advisor

Pete is a Bristol-based wildlife conservationist. Pete now works for the Derek Gow Consultancy, a leading organisation in the reintroduction of British species. Most of his work so far has focused on wildcats, fossorial water voles, glow-worms and harvest mice, the latter of which Pete lead a release of in Godney Marshes in 2019. As a lifelong naturalist and advocate for reintroductions and wilding since childhood, to restore some of the wilder complexity to the land where earlier generations of his family farmed would be a dream come true.
