BRIAN MAY: He Just Doesn't Quit
When Queen guitarist Brian May isn't working on music, he's writing books on photography or astronomy, helping others, battling the U.K. government over the plight of animals or pushing his latest project -- turning a plot of Dorset, England farmland into a woodland wildlife sanctuary.
May is proposing planting 100,000 trees on 155 acres in September, saying, "We're turning land which has been used for farming back to original woodland, that's the long term plan. We're adjacent to a piece of woodland which I've owned for a number of years anyway, so it's an extension of an already existing scheme to try and recreate an ancient landscape."
Of course if his plan becomes reality, the land will be off limits to hunters. May says he wants to "manage the land in a more humane fashion than has been the tradition."
