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.

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.
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.
