Keepers and conservationists at Wildwood Trust took delivery of four of Britain’s rarest lizards today.
The sand lizards, which were believed to have gone extinct in Kent in the 1970’s, will be bred at the Canterbury based wildlife conservation charity with a view to reintroducing them to their former range.
Wildwood Trust, Kent’s Unique Wildlife park and conservation charity, are thrilled to announce that two of our beavers are set to be released to reinforce the population in the Knapdale Forest in Scotland.
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.
This month has seen the birth of seven Red Squirrel babies at Wildwood who will be released into the wild in Wales as soon as they have grown into adulthood.
Sir Roger Gale MP for North Thanet has lent a helping hand today feeding the rescued bears and Lynx at Wildwood Trust. Sir Roger has been a helper at Wildwood for over 20 years giving advice on setting up the charity and even emergency help at the Brambles wildlife park which Wildwood grew out of. Sir Roger came to Wildwood this week to learn more about our charitable aims of rewilding Britain and our forthcoming appeal to build a ground breaking residential rewilding education centre.
