Conference : « Re-wilding the Walloon forest ? » (Festival des Bonnes Herbes)
Putting wild nature back at the heart of our territories: this is a challenge that seems to be taking shape more and more in the minds of managers of natural areas in Wallonia and in Europe! Without falling into a dualism of human versus nature, management versus non-management, or wild versus cultural landscapes, rewilding is a concept that opens new perspectives on how to conduct our nature conservation and biodiversity development policies. Under this banner are presented different orientations or techniques for the restoration of natural dynamics and processes, which allow a more complex expression of interspecific relationships and benefit a large number of species. All over Europe, projects are being developed that apply the principles and reap the benefits. After the wolf, the stork, the lynx and the beaver, will we soon see bisons in the Walloon forest and vultures in our sky? Conference animated by Sébastien Lézaca-Rojas
