Wildwood Trust, Kent’s unique wildlife park and conservation charity, is thrilled with the news that new legislation in Scotland makes it illegal to kill beavers or destroy dams and lodges without a licence.
Ash, Wildwood's young female wild boar, produced a litter of two boarlets last week and has just brought them out of their nest. Proud father, Sherwood, is keeping an eye on the boarlets who can be seen keenly exploring their new surroundings. This is the first birth at Wildwood this year with others expected to follow any day, such as red squirrels, reindeer and Soay sheep.
These stunning images of some of Britain’s rarest wildlife were captured last week by internationally famous National Geographic photographer, Joel Sartore.
Wildwood Trust was honoured that its rare wildlife would be immortalised in the National Geographic Photo Ark project. Using the power of photography, the project aims to inspire people to help save species at risk before it’s too late.
