Journey to the wild
Translocating species back to the wild is the core aim of several projects we work on. It isn't just a broad range of focal species, a well planned translocation involves an incredibly broad spectrum of jobs and our wild experts are working across the board.
It may be the very early stage of training of in-country staff, like our WildGenes team are doing with a lab team in Cambodia for the Siamese crocodile, or providing genetic advice in pre-release planning like we’re doing with Addax, and continuing that support for ongoing translocation efforts like Scimitar horned oryx and dama gazelle. Our knowledgeable keepers house and care for individual animals like with pine hoverfly or wildcats in purpose built pre-release facilities and our field team may work to release that animal to wild, like we’ve done with beavers and pond mud snails.
