Libby Drew


Libby Drew is the Director of our charity the Knepp Wildland Foundation.

The Foundation has been set up to act as a catalyst for nature recovery across Sussex and beyond. It will use the lessons learned from Knepp to provide evidence and inspiration for landscape recovery and support a new generation of rewilders to take this work into the future.

Libby has a background in journalism, social innovation and public engagement. She founded the award-winning non-profit ‘On Our Radar’ that builds community networks to surface hidden stories and put citizens at the forefront of social and environmental change.

She lives on a smallholding in the High Weald and, when not running events, writing bids or rallying land managers, can be found foraging, photographing nature, and chasing after her free-ranging chickens and children.

“It’s such an honour to be building this wonderful Foundation from the ground up. We have a brilliant path ahead of us and I’m particular excited about our role as coordinator for Weald to Waves; a ground-breaking project to establish a 50mile nature corridor across Sussex.


This year, I will also be supporting a complex network of 30 farmers, land owners and partners to development a plan to restore the river Adur, one of the biggest and most polluted rivers in the south east. Both these projects will develop a blueprint for UK landscape recovery and demonstrate a future where nature can thrive alongside food production, housing and our social and cultural lives.”

Our 12+ Policy

Knepp Wildland Safaris and campsite are all about the quiet and patient observation of nature.

Some of the species we are likely to encounter are shy or can be frightened by loud noises or sudden movements. Our campsite with open-air fire-pits, wood-burning stoves and an on-site pond is unsuitable for small children.

For this reason, our safaris, holiday cottages and campsite are suitable only for children of 12 and over.
