We must ACT NOW to bring the Wildcats back to Britain

For a limited time only, your donation could unlock 10 times its original value!

We have the chance of a lifetime to save the Wildcats, but we urgently need your help before it is too late! 

Don't miss this unique opportunity to bring the Wildcats back to Britain, donate today to help us unlock £46,940 of Landfill Communities funding. To secure these funds we must raise £4,694 by 14th June or we will lose it all!

No matter how much or how little you can spare, it will make a big difference. By donating today, your donation could unlock 10 times its original value, making even more of an impact for the future of this amazing species!

The European Wildcat is Britain’s rarest mammal and our last and only native cat species. Currently, the only wild population of these rare cats live in the remote Scottish Highlands, but that population has been declared “functionally extinct”.

Our aim is to create the first British population of Wildcats outside of Scotland since the 1800s. The species disappeared from England and Wales over a century ago because of persecution during a time when all predators, including Wildcats, were considered as vermin.

A healthy population of Wildcats in the wild will help to restore the balance in the ecosystem by controlling numbers of prey animals, such as rabbits and rodents, and predators such as foxes through competition for food.

With your help, we can begin to establish a self-sustaining Wildcat population in areas where they once thrived.
 

Help us return this beautiful species back to the wild by donating today.

We must act now to save this species from total extinction in Britain!

All funds raised will help us to build a new breeding facility for the reintroduction of these rare cats. We are aiming to build 10 additional breeding enclosures at a cost of £50,000.

Each enclosure will house a breeding pair of cats, which will produce healthy kittens each year for release back into the wild. As the breeding season for the cats is between January and March, we must start building this summer. 

This is one part of a long term project to restore these amazing cats to the wild. Wildwood, in partnership with Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, Vincent Wildlife Trust and other academic partners, are undertaking research into the best sites for their reintroduction. The team will ensure the needs and views of local communities are taken into full account during this project.

This is a long term commitment and this breeding facility could support a 10 to 20 year project to create a viable and self-sustaining heathy population of cats in the wild.

Help us return this beautiful species back to the wild by donating today.

Help us return this beautiful species back to the wild by donating today.

Please note that all donations made during 1st June 2021 - 14th June 2021 will not be eligible for gift aid.

These are restricted funds which will be paid to the Landfill Operator, Veolia to unlock £46,940 in Landfill Communities funding for the additional wildcat breeding facilities at Wildwood.

If the funding application is unsuccessful or if we exceed our target, all funds raised will still go towards ensuring the Wildcats successful return into the wild.
