Join the fight to SAVE Wildwood

Wildwood planned to open to the public after being closed for almost three months. We had spent a huge amount of time and money putting measures in place to ensure that we could open in a safe and covid secure way. BUT - at midnight on Sunday the government passed a new law forcing us to remain closed to the public. We have had no explanation for this and we do not know when we will be able to open!

Without our visitors we are losing a huge amount of money – being closed for another month will cost Wildwood about £200,000. We cannot sustain that for long. Some of the biggest zoos in the UK have been told by the government to prepare to remain closed indefinitely. As a small charity Wildwood could not survive that.

We remain utterly committed to looking after our animals, carrying on with our conservation work and our animal rescues. We have two orphaned bear cubs coming in a few months. We cannot let this crisis stop us from completing their rescue.

We understand that these are difficult times for everyone, but for those of you that are able to and would like to do more to help, it really would mean a lot.

Help us give Mish & Lucy a better future

Donate today to help the unluckiest bear cubs in the world

With their mother gone and unable to fend for themselves, their fate was sealed. They couldn't go back into the wild without their mother to take care of them as they would not survive. The two bear cubs desperately need a forever home to give them a chance of a happy, healthy future!

As world leading experts for the rescue and rehabilitation of bears, we know, with your help, we can offer them the very best possible future. Mish and Lucy are currently being held in a temporary enclosure which they will soon outgrow. To avoid future health issues, it is vital that we bring them home before winter sets in and we need your help to make this happen.

PineMarten2

Time is running out for the pine marten!

The European pine marten was once widespread in the UK. Sadly, centuries of persecution and the gradual disappearance of suitable habitat, has led this beautiful animal to the brink of extinction in Britain.
To help bring them back, we need your help to continue our vital work to increase their numbers and give the pine marten the best possible chance of survival in the future.

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.
