Catch the show on BBC1 at 6.00pm on Sunday 29th December
About the show:
Ellie Harrison visits the native animal park Wildwood, in Kent, to find out more about the UK's home-grown animals both past and present and how they could feature in our plans for the future. Ellie meets head of the park Peter Smith to learn why beavers are the perfect habitat managers for waterways and helps to survey the park's 250-strong water vole population. She then helps to feed wild boars in the woods and watches a lynx pounce on its dinner. Next, Ellie enters the wolf enclosure to try to get a feeling of what life could be like if they were allowed to roam free in Britain again. Then she meets a much less scary predator – a wildcat kitten, hand raised and crazy for the Countryfile soundman's fluffy microphone!
We hope to see you soon!
