Last chance to double your donation and #SaveOurRedSquirrels

Can you help save our red squirrels?
 
Wildwood Trust    Urgent Appeal
Can you help save our red squirrels?
 
Time is running out... Donate today to #SaveOurRedSquirrels
 
Without your donation today, we could lose the vital funds needed to save Britain's most endearing native species, the red squirrel. Red squirrel numbers have been devastated over the past century and will continue to decline unless urgent action is taken. Without immediate conservation efforts, red squirrels could be be completely wiped out in Britain within the next 12 years!
 
DONATE TODAY »
 
We only have until 12pm Tuesday 4th December to reach our target and still have £1,849 match funds to unlock or we will lose them! All donations given through the Big Give Christmas Challenge will be DOUBLED, so this means your donation will make twice the difference.

Did you know?
 
Red squirrels are particularly important for our woodland ecosystem, unlike the greys, they are better suited to spread the seeds of coniferous trees; being specially adapted to feed on the seeds in their cones. This makes them crucial to the regeneration of our coniferous woodlands. If red squirrels became completely extinct in the UK, it would have a negative impact on our coniferous woodlands, which are also favoured by other species such as the goshawk, pine martin and wildcat.

You can make a difference!
 
Your donation will help us to expand our red squirrel breeding facilities, renovate old enclosures and increase our breeding pairs. It will also ensure they receive an enriched diet, mimicking what they would feed on naturally in the wild. This could result in larger litters and those being released will have an advantage as they are already adapted to the diet.

The red squirrel is our only native squirrel species, now vastly outnumbered by the invasive grey squirrel. It has been extinct in Kent since the 1960s and without immediate conservation, is expected to be completely wiped out in Britain within the next 12 years! Your support will make the difference as to whether or not future generations will see these beautiful animals in the wild.
