Natural Capital: a case study about the reasons for measuring the baseline of natural capital in a landscape, and the practicalities of doing it

Natural capital has finally been given economic value – the combination of soils, species, communities, habitats and landscapes are now recognised as ecosystems services, with critical societal benefits. The degradation of natural capital poses economic, environmental and social threats. Can we use nature projects to combat the climate emergency and biodiversity crisis so that future generations have a better world to live and work in? We visit the Bunloit Estate to find out about the practical work they’ve done in the last year to establish the baseline facts of their natural capital assets, and hear about the Bunloit team’s plans for securing investment for improvement and restoration projects.
