Wildwood Trust animal park receives 18,500 cash boost

A Kent animal park is to receive £18,500 from a waste management company to create a conservation centre.

The Wildwood Trust, near Canterbury, said it would use the money to help protect endangered British species.

The funding comes from money Viridor Waste Management would have to pay as landfill tax to the government, on rubbish it disposes at landfill sites.

The Landfill Communities Fund allows it to use the money to benefit specially chosen projects instead.

Viridor Credits, which distributes the money, supports environmental and community-based schemes.
