Transform all currently disused military bases (but still owned by the state or receive very large subsidies from the state?) into 'restore and re-wilded wildlife sanctuaries'

I propose a future Labour adopt the current German policy (see link below) of transforming all currently disused UK military bases (but still owned by the state or receive very large subsidies from the state?) into 'restored' (i.e. native UK flora and fauna reintroduced to re-create original pristine ecological conditions - e.g. native UK flower species that help UK bumblebees and monarch butterfly species)  and 're-wilded' (i.e. re-introduce beneficial but extinct former native UK species - e.g. Red squirrels & Pine Martins, beavers and European eels, Lynx etc) wildlife sanctuaries', especially if doing so contributes to the creation of 'green corridors' to link one breeding area of an endangered UK flora/fauna/insect species with another.
