Wildwood Wild Animal Park
Wildwood Trust specialises in British wildlife, past and present, against the natural backdrop of an ancient coppiced woodland in East Kent. We welcome about 12,000 school children and students from London and across the south-east each year - approximately half of whom are KS3 and above and almost all of whom take advantage of at least one of the educational opportunities offered.
If you are seeking to inspire your children/students at first hand and make wildlife/environmental topics such as animal adaptation, habitats, ecology or conservation come alive, then we can help. We can show you animals moving through their natural setting, using their colour and camouflage to best advantage. We can compare huge-eyed deer with their natural predator, the wolf, and watch how each animal moves and uses its senses to understand its surroundings.
We use our woodland for minibeast hunts and ecological investigations for older students and our conservation department offers opportunities for those studying a wide range of wildlife issues, from captive breeding and reintroductions of endangered native species to rewilding. All scheduled topics offered are National Curriculum/exam board-linked but we will always do our best to meet individual teachers' requirements. As we are a family and school-based visitor attraction, all Wildwood Education staff are CRB-checked.
