Nature Live injects life into the land.

Join author, Isabella Tree, to discover what happens when the land can breathe again.

Forced to accept that intensive farming on their land at Knepp in West Sussex was economically unsustainable, Isabella and her husband Charlie Burrell took a spectacular leap of faith in 2000 and handed their 3,500 acres back to nature.

Managed with minimal human intervention, and with herds of free-roaming animals driving the creation of new habitats, the land is now heaving with life. The project has become a leading light for nature conservation in the UK, demonstrating how a hands-off, 'process-led' approach can restore land and wildlife in a dramatically short space of time.
