A donation doesn’t just support endangered Pine Martens today …..
Tonight at 7pm, courtesy of the BBC’s The One Show, you can see nest box film footage of our pine marten mother giving birth to and rearing her lively family.
This incredible recording is not only delightful, it is rare. Almost as rare in fact as the creatures it portrays.
Remarkably, this is the Wildwood Trust’s sixth successful year of breeding thanks to the dedication, skills and understanding of the entire team who work tirelessly to ensure that conditions are perfect to bring about these happy and precious events.
Their skills have been perfected as part of our captive breeding programme in order that we can support the return of the Pine Marten to England in areas where we know they once lived.
As a Charity, resources are tight and in order to continue, Wildwood Trust needs your support to ensure we see kits in our nesting boxes again this Spring. Please help our Pine Martens by donating whatever you can afford at our MyDonate page.
How we might use your gift:
£10 - feeds a pine marten family for a week £15 - buys a bespoke, hand built nesting box £50 - contributes to essential veterinary care and medical supplies £60 - buys an HD weather and pine marten resistant camcorder to monitor the birthing and rearing process £100 - contributes towards furthering knowledge about the species £150 - contributes to the installation of an onsite scientific feed-monitoring facility
