Wildwood Trust is celebrating the birth of more dormice this week after a successful reintroduction earlier this month to a secret site in Warwickshire. Recent reports show the dormouse to be one of Britain’s rarest mammals and could be threatened with extinction as numbers have plummeted by 70% in the last 20 years.

- Amazing images of Wildwood’s rare Red Squirrel babies have been captured, marking a huge boost to save this rare species and help return them across the UK.

- Red Squirrels were wiped out in most of England and Wales, but a new collaborative effort has seen the first serious project for their reintroduction to the mainland.

- Wildwood Trust has helped repopulate The North Wales Island of Anglesey with Red Squirrels over the last 12 years, but as the native reds recolonise the mainland, Wildwood is now providing Red Squirrels to give support to their expansion and ensure their spread throughout the U.K.

After a few months in semi-hibernation, our bears are now fully awake! They will be let into their large enclosure at 11am on Friday 24th March and you can win the chance to reintroduce them back into their woodland playground.
All visitors entering Wildwood before 10.45 on this Friday morning will be given a free raffle ticket. The winning ticket will be announced at the bear enclosure at 11am and the winner will be pulling the sliding doors and releasing the bears! Our bear bridge will also be opening for the summer and, as always, gives wonderful views over the whole of the wooded area.
Come down and help us welcome our bears to 2017...it'll be a great day!
