Rewilding: How to build a forest

Ahead of World Environment Day on Saturday, Cosmos spoke to Brett Krause – a self-described “forest builder” – about his reforestation work in the Cassowary Coast region of Tropical North Queensland, Australia.

Krause is the president and co-founder of Brettacorp Inc, a not-for-profit building forests in collaboration with the international SUGi project. We ask Krause about his forest-building projects, and in particular the benefits of the “Miyawaki method” of afforestation he uses.

If you live in the Cassowary Coast region and want to get involved, Krause hosts community revegetation days on the first Saturday of every month – check out the website for details.
