Environmentalists in the UK want to return a quarter of the country to the wild, in a bid to absorb carbon dioxide to help combat climate change.

The proposal is in is a report by environmental group Rewilding Britain which promotes the benefits of restoring and protecting natural environments such as forests and wetlands.

The report suggests returning an area of 6 million hectares of land – roughly three times the size of Wales – to nature, which it says would remove up to 47 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere each year as the new plants absorb carbon.
