Heyyy, 

My names Laura, I’m 18 and live in England.

I love keeping fit and running is super important to me. Being outdoors, camping, hiking relaxes me but don’t get me wrong I’m all for a Netflix binge or duvet days.

My aim is to travel as much as possible and find a job that makes me happy. I’m going to Uni in October and I’m ridiculously excited. 

I’ve done this before and met some really cool people. I’m only looking for friends as I’ve already found the love of my life :D

Do you think wolves will ever be wild in England again or will they only be able to be seen at places run by charities? sorry this doesn't make sense, i wasn't entirely sure how to phrase it. Thank you, I love your blog, it's incredible!

Though early writing from Roman and later Saxon chronicles indicate that wolves appear to have been extraordinarily numerous on the island, there are currently no wild wolves in England, nor in the rest of the UK. In 1500, the last wolf was killed in England. In 1770, Ireland’s last wolf was killed. They were exterminated from Britain through a combination of deforestation and active hunting through bounty systems. 

If wolves want to return to England on their own, they’d have to swim back there. The closest country where wild wolves reside from where they could swim to England from would be France. So yeah, that’s not going to happen.

Over the past few years there however have been several initiatives/ideas for reintroducing wolves in the UK, such as this plan for Scotland, so who knows! Another interesting article: [x]

Pine martens’ return could bring a red squirrel resurgence

by Emma Sheehy

The return of pine martens to central Ireland has been followed by a resurgence of red squirrels, writes Emma Sheehy. Now that the predatory mammal is being seen south of the Scottish border, the same could happen in England. The heavier grey squirrel is easy prey for pine martens, and their demise could open up ecological space for the native red to recolonise.

A pine marten has been spotted in England recently, the first in more than 100 years. The reemergence of Britain’s second-rarest mammal, a cat-sized relative of badgers and weasels, is a great story in itself. But it may have another upside, as pine martens could be bad news for one of the UK’s least popular animals: the invasive grey squirrel…
