A New Calf Is Born Dec 2024

A new Bison calf is born in Kent!

We're excited to announce the birth of a second calf in the Blean Bison project!


This heartwarming event, aptly described as “the best Christmas present,” is a significant milestone in the successful journey of our Blean bison project.

This is another big milestone for the award-winning partnership between Wildwood Trust and Kent Wildlife Trust!

The herd was introduced into West Blean and Thornden Woods in 2022, firstly in July with three females, one of whom unexpectedly gave birth in September and then later the bull in December, who had been delayed due to post-Brexit paperwork complications.

The latest arrival and sixth member of the herd is the first to have been conceived and born in the woodland from the specially selected founding herd.

The bison are a nature-based solution to woodland management, shaping the habitat around them without the need for machinery and human intervention.
