Our conservation team has received 4 under- weight hazel dormice so far this winter, which they are feeding up and caring for until next Spring. These cuddly little animals would almost certainly have perished if they had not been rescued.

Late Baby Water Voles
Water voles in our conservation breeding area have delighted us by producing late litters of babies. These are being parent reared and are all doing well.
Our team of rangers and keepers have been hard at work building a new enclosure for our lynx, Cara and Shria. It's approaching the final stages for completion and we'll be moving Cara and Shria in to their new home in January!
The Wildwood Christmas Tombola is back!
Thanks to the generosity of some of our suppliers (Aurora World, Wild Republic, Indigo, Ark Toys and Gifted Wholesale we thank you!) we are able to offer our biggest and best tombola ever! At just £2 per ticket, with everyone a winner, do not miss the chance to have a go when you pass through the Wildwood shop.
With over 50 beautiful soft toys up for grabs, as well as other awesome prizes, this is something not to be missed out on the run up to the festive period.

Shepway Youth Group
Thank you to the team and kids from Shepway Youth Group who supplied us with some fantastic home-made plaques. The plaques are on the top level of our wolf viewing platform and show off the kids' newly taught pyrography skills - pyrography is a form of art where the picture is made by burning into wood.
