Baby Dormice Rescue 2019

Your support is vital if we are to continue to rescue orphaned baby dormice and reintroduce them to areas where they've previously become extinct. Your gift of just £25 could literally mean the difference between life and death…. What is more, these babies will not only be given a chance to survive, but could also help to prevent the extinction of one of Britain’s most threatened animals.

New scientific evidence shows the perilous state of Britain’s dormice that now, without our help, face almost certain extinction. Despite being one of our most endearing woodland mammals, its desperate plight has alarmed scientists and the situation is getting much worse!

With your help we can stop the dormouse going extinct in Britain

Our dedicated conservation team are the leading experts in supplying captive bred dormice for national reintroduction programmes. But we cannot do this alone and your donation is vital to save the dormouse from extinction.

But there is still hope!

Wildwood’s dedicated experts and volunteers have worked for over 15 years to create a project that can reverse this extinction, but without your help we cannot possibly build on our expertise.

Wildwood has bred more than 170 dormice and has successfully reintroduced them to woodlands where they have previously become extinct

Wildwood does a huge amount of work to save the dormice. Dormouse enclosures require constant work and repair, we pay for expensive veterinary care, scientific tests and the best nutrition to ensure our dormice have the best possible chance of survival when released back into the wild. Your support will help us do so much more and will allow us to repopulate the British countryside.

Your donation will be used to prevent the extinction of this wonderful species and will be put towards rescuing these beautiful creatures from their tragic struggle for survival. Please help us give a future to dormice so that future generations are not robbed of these wonderful animals.

The dormice in the video were rescued last year by Wildwood and have been released back into the countryside this year.

If we exceed our target, any additional donations willl be put towards protecting, conserving and rewilding British wildlife. As a charity, Wildwood Trust relies on generous donations and legacies from members of the public. Without the support of yourself and others like you, we would simply not be able to continue our work to protect British wildlife for future generations.
