Re-introductions?
« on: July 23, 2015, 10:43:52 PM »
The European beaver, the sea eagle, the red kite - all have been re-introduced to the British countryside.
There are groups which want to re-introduce the lynx as well
http://www.lynxuk.org/

Any thoughts?
What flora and fauna, if any, would you like to see re-introduced to these isles?

Ah....you've been to Sauchiehall street, then?
(I believe there ARE some bods who want to splice mammoth DNA into elephant embryos.
I think it's a bad idea....the environment has warmed up too much for this experiment.)

The wolf.

If only to see how long it takes for them to realise they can get free meals at BA's.

I'd be up for it.  It wouldn't make a great difference to anything.    :)

Certainly parts of Scotland could support a lynx population.
I doubt whether a viable wolf population is a possibility, though - but something needs to be done to control the red and sika deer population, bth of which are causing severe damage to efforts at reforestation.
