a good news story

After a 600-year absence, 2020 marked a significant milestone with the first successful breeding of white storks at Knepp Estate. Known for their striking appearance and long migrations, white storks have become symbols of environmental restoration and hope. These efforts not only help the storks but also enhance local biodiversity, supporting other species and improving ecosystem health.

White storks prefer open landscapes such as grasslands and wetlands, avoiding densely wooded areas. Their migration routes from Africa to Europe, including stops in Britain, are vital to their survival, relying heavily on the availability of suitable habitats. These birds play a crucial role in the ecosystem, shaping the land and helping control populations of their prey.

This project showcases the power of targeted conservation efforts and the positive impact of restoring natural habitats. As these majestic birds soar again over British skies, they remind us of nature's resilience and the importance of environmental stewardship.

supercharging our ecosystems

Beyond the skies, the White Stork Project also underscores a broader environmental message. Healthy ecosystems like those supported by the stork's return are crucial in controlling our carbon emissions and combating climate change. This is a powerful reminder of the interconnectedness of all life and the critical role biodiversity plays in our global ecosystem.
