Welcome to Education at Wildwood Kent. As one of the leading British animal conservation charities in the UK, we are at the forefront of pioneering conservation projects, making us an invaluable place to visit to learn about conservation, animals and the natural world.
We offer engaging workshops linked to the national curriculum, educational tours and animal focus talks for a wide range of groups and ages. Or, immerse yourself in authentic historical experiences during our Living History and Blean Bison sessions.
Set in 40 acres of ancient woodland, Wildwood is an excellent place to practice woodland ecology techniques such as invertebrate and plant sampling and small mammal trapping.
We also have an outreach programme which allows us to bring conservation into your classroom. GCSE, A-level and IB groups can join us at the beach to collect data using practical rocky shore and sand dune sampling techniques.
