Your views are desperately needed to help Wildwood...! We have the chance of getting funding to build an amazing new residential education centre at Wildwood, but without emails and letters of support for our project we will not get funding.
The centre could transform our ability to deliver outstanding wildlife education, and deliver conservation training courses to help create the expertise that could rewild Britain.
If you, especially as a representative of a local group or local school, can send us an email of support (to firstname.lastname@example.org) for our project then that will help us unlock the funding!

Our aim is to build a sustainable education centre for residential learning of natural heritage at our charity's unique Wildlife Discovery Park near Canterbury. This project will be based on our plan allowing residential teaching of school children, volunteers and community groups across Kent.
Our hugely successful day visit education centre sees over 10,000 children and students from all over Kent visiting a year but with only one classroom and limited facilities we can’t possibly fulfil the demand and ensure everyone gets the chance to experience British nature in a truly wild setting. We also offer a programme of free experiences for a large range of community groups and individuals with special needs or restricted access to wildlife who would be able to take advantage of improved facilities and help us welcome even more disadvantaged groups to Wildwood.
Our immensely popular programme of volunteer training sees hundreds of people attending courses (especially on the weekend) from all over the country. The possibility to provide multi-day courses with available residential facilities could see Wildwood become a leader in the training of nature conservation volunteers.
Not only will this allow us to train the nature conservationists of tomorrow, but will provide the opportunity for general interest courses open to all and even the chance to spend the night at Wildwood! You could experience how the British countryside used to be at night: with howling wolves, hooting owls and many more of our nocturnal animals.
There is a need to build a residential centre to deliver residential courses to a range of our existing clients and widen our appeal to groups farther afield. Wildwood is a British wildlife centre of excellence which has been hugely successful in delivering our charitable goals, being a leader in the 'rewilding movement'. We have a very large membership and client base (over 60,000) and it has been an aspiration to meet the needs of our many visitors who wish to have residential learning, better immersing people into the wildlife heritage of our country through our education programmes. Our charitable education and experiences are already self-funding and our research shows there is a sustainable income stream for residential activities but we lack the capital funds to create this unique opportunity and make a residential education centre at Wildwood a reality. With your help we can make this happen.
Send your email of support to email@example.com and help us create the nature conservationists of tomorrow who can save our wildlife and rewild Britain.
