I'm all for anything Sir David Attenborough backs, and i think it's a wonderful thing they've done here.

But Highland Cattle? They're hardly rare or endangered.
I for one would have hoped to see more animals that truly need a place like this.. thanks Cal

What a great idea turn a trash dump into a wildlife habitat. I hope the US gets this idea and will run with it.

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Mr. Gray. Kudos to The Essex Wildlife Trust for their efforts in this transformation. Wonderful news. Read and noted.

I wonder though what gasses are leaking up from all of that rubbish into the grasses that the wildlife eats!?
