Time is running out for the pine marten!
The European pine marten was once widespread in the UK. Sadly, centuries of persecution (including poisoning and hunting for their furs) and the gradual disappearance of suitable habitat, has led this beautiful animal to the brink of extinction in Britain.
To help save the pine marten, Wildwood Trust are excited to be taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge the UK’s biggest match funding campaign. Christmas Challenge week will take place from 12pm (midday) 3rd December #GivingTuesday – 12pm 10th December, when donations will be DOUBLED, so please save this date to make your donation have twice the impact!
The race is on to save baby dormice before it's too late!
New scientific evidence shows the perilous state of Britain’s dormice that now, without our help, face almost certain extinction. Despite being one of our most endearing woodland mammals, its desperate plight has alarmed scientists and the situation is getting much worse!
With your help we can stop the dormouse going extinct in Britain. To find out more and to make a donation to save the baby dormice please click here.To find out more and to make a donation to save the baby dormice please click here.
Save Our Red Squirrels
The red squirrel is our only native squirrel species and is now vastly outnumbered by the invasive grey squirrel. Without immediate conservation the species is expected to be completely wiped out in Britain within the next 12 years!
Wildwood has been leading the return of red squirrels back to the UK with important and successful release programmes across Anglesey and mainland Wales. This success has formed a buffer population of red squirrels, regaining lost ground. We have been successfully breeding red squirrels in captivity for over 15 years and send up to 10 juveniles every year for release.To find out more about how your donation will help, please click here.
