Rebecca Wrigley

Chief Executive, Rewildling Britain


Rebecca is one of the founders of Rewilding Britain and is now our Chief Executive. Leading on the development of Rewilding Britain’s strategies, she creates and implements our vision and mission of rewilding Britain for a healthier, wilder future. She manages the overall operations and resources of Rewilding Britain and acts as the main point of communication between the board of directors and the rest of the team. 

She has worked in the voluntary and public sectors for 23 years, 15 years at senior management level. Her particular expertise is engaging local communities in decision-making about their land and resources. Rebecca has developed and implemented conservation and community development programmes in the UK, Mexico, Uganda and New Zealand.

Rebecca has always enjoyed experiences of wild nature — having watched gorillas, seen turtles hatch and dived with sharks — but nowadays this is more likely to be trapping elephant hawk moths with her daughter in the back garden!

Rebecca will be participating on the Nature-based Solutions panel session.
