Wildwood’s mission is to protect, conserve and rewild British wildlife.
We use natural solutions to fight the biodiversity crisis we are facing, halting the desolation of our wildlife and returning what we have lost. We do this through rewilding – restoring natural process and reintroducing missing species to shape the landscape.
Keystone species have the power to impact their environment, positively or negatively, creating the habitat to support a huge range of wildlife. From mighty bison restoring woodland, to industrious beavers creating wetlands, everyone has a role to play in their ecosystem.
The most influential keystone species is us. Every action we takes has the potential to change the environment. We can make the choice how we impact the world around us – are we going to stand up and safeguard nature, giving our wildlife a chance for a future?
You can make a difference. Become a Keystone supporter at Wildwood and build a future where people and nature can thrive together.

How your support helps
Wildwood relies on voluntary support to protect, conserve, and rewild British wildlife, so your donation really makes a difference. It will support the welfare of our animals, breeding and reintroductions, educating the next generation of rewilders, and giving British species a home again.
Keystone Supports can have a powerful impact at Wildwood and in the wider world beyond. Here's just a few of the many projects made possible because of your support:
For the first time in the UK, bison have been introduced as a keystone species to reinstate natural processes in a 600 hectare ancient Kent woodland.
Since 2002, Wildwood has bred hundreds of red squirrels for reintroduction, helping them reclaim the home that they lost.
For over 20 years we've been we've been supporting releases across the country, fighting to allow beavers to remain, campaigning for their protection and educating on their history and importance.
