Letts Safari has launched – doing something about climate change by spreading rewilding safari parks across the UK. LettsSafari.com is currently live in beta and the first Letts Safari park is up and running in southwest England.
The family that invented the commercial diary 200 years ago have launched an ambitious new greentech venture called Letts Safari. Letts Safari was created to accelerate the move to ‘renewable nature’, obtained through nature regeneration and surface-based carbon capture.
Letts Safari harnesses the energy of the environmental movement and gives those involved actions to take beyond protest. It enables all people to do something about climate change. Members subscribe to a digital platform at LettsSafari.com that builds next generation safari parks – one tree, one animal, one new park at a time. Every 10 subscribers we plant a tree a year, every 100 subscribers we release a wild animal, and every 10,000 subscribers we will create a new, real-world safari park a year. The first Letts Safari park is up and running in southwest England.
The Letts remind us of the threat of climate change. They explain that our soil and waterways are so damaged that they’re no longer able to absorb the carbon we produce. As a result emissions are trapped in the atmosphere creating pollution, violent storms, droughts, flooding and wildfire. We’re losing wildlife and plants faster than ever before.
Letts Safari offers a simple solution. We build rewilding safari parks that do something about climate change. Our eco parks rapidly repair soil and waterways so they can absorb carbon dioxide, and ensure that trees and plants thrive naturally, providing habitats for wildlife.
When you subscribe to Letts Safari we plant trees, release wildlife and build new habitats. Each tree we plant removes 1 tonne of carbon dioxide during its life. We also remove carbon with scrub, wild grasses, wetland and bog.
Once we get enough subscribers we will create more Letts Safari parks – with our members – to make a bigger difference. Hopefully along the way members will get inspired to build a mini Letts Safari in their backyard, at work, school and in their community. We’ll share the secret source.
Subscribe to Letts Safari and you get a front row seat at the safari parks. With video footage, hidden cameras, wildlife photography and stories that transport you to the wild – online. As a member you not only get to build eco safari parks with us, but you also immerse themselves in the magic of these places.
Land holders with 50+ acre parks can apply to join the Letts Safari Network of parks. Approved parks receive support and guidance from Letts Safari, its members and supporters.
The Letts accidentally discovered rewilding in 2006 when they decided to create a small, wild space outside New York. They built an ecosystem of wild grasses, wildflower, shrub, scrub and trees on just a few acres. Before they knew it the wildlife started arriving. First insects, bugs and snakes. Then birds and mammals. A wasteland turned into a wildlife haven in just a couple of years.
They decided to do it again in a larger space. In 2014 they bought an old, run down 100 acre park and garden on the outskirts of Exeter in the southwest of England. It was a mess. Today it’s a leading rewilding wildlife park. We created Letts Safari so we can share this fascinating new approach to ‘renewable nature’ and build many more eco safari parks. What we accidentally discovered back in 2006 is today called smaller-scale rewilding. If enough of us do enough of it, we can help fix the climate problem.
