Chris D'Agorne

Life to Land, and its sister sites Buy Native and How to Rewild, were all created by Chris D’Agorne. Someone recently described me as an ‘ecopreneur’ and that’s probably a good name for what I do, if a bit of an awkward one. 

With 3.5 acres of land that I’ve been managing for about two years now, I started researching rewilding as a way to teach myself what I needed to know. This evolved into a full time role at Ecosulis – the UK’s first rewilding consultancy – where I worked for about two years.

How to Rewild

I started How to Rewild to improve access to free rewilding advice, but I’ve been receiving increasing numbers of emails from landowners asking for custom advice. So in late 2023 I resolved to work on a web-based tool that would allow me to offer a professional service which complements what is already in the market – this is what Life to Land will become.

Varied Career

I’ve had a very varied career, which has taken in everything from radio-tracking black bears in Minnesota to cleaning toilets in Alaska, photographing models on the Isle of Wight and teaching primary school children. 

I am lucky enough to have ticked a number of different creative boxes over the years, and have been a professional photographer, videographer, video editor, writer, illustrator, podcast producer and public speaker.

Highlights

It’s difficult to summarise my background in a paragraph or two, but some highlights that are relevant to Life to Land include:

– invited speaker on pond restoration at the 2023 CIEEM Summer Conference
– running a multimillion pound travel website for 2.5 years
– creating Buy Native – a new search engine for native plants
– researching and writing about rewilding at Ecosulis for 21 months
