Born to be Wild

Discover our wild side with BBC Scotland’s ‘Born to be Wild’.

Wildlife (1)Ever wondered what goes on behind the doors of our National Wildlife Centre? Tune in to the brand new BBC Scotland channel to get a first-hand look at how we help rehabilitate and release all kinds of injured and orphaned wildlife. 

The new ten-part series ‘Born to be Wild’ gives viewers incredible access to some of those animals, and follows our dedicated staff as they help all sorts of animals overcome injury or illness and return to their natural habitat.

Everyone at our National Wildlife Centre works tirelessly to care for the wild animals which come through the doors of the centre, each and every day of the year.

Last year the centre successfully released over 5,000 animals back into the wild and several of these will be featured on the show. From foxes to fledglings, otters to ospreys and weasels to woodpeckers, the series will chart amazing individual journeys for some of Scotland’s best loved wild creatures.

‘Born to be Wild’ will air on Monday nights at 8pm. Episode one is on Monday 25 February.
