Our Head Keeper, Matt is providing daily updates with beautiful photography / footage of our wonderful wildlife on: Facebook and Instagram so you can keep bang up to date with our animals.
We hope we can count on your ongoing support during this extraordinary and difficult time. We thank you.

A message of thanks from Centre owner David Mills (and Flo!)

Please support our animals in this time of need

Due to temporary closure our source of income has entirely stopped, whilst many of our costs are ongoing. The feeding and care of our animals is our top priority. Our Head Keeper, Matt and his deputy, Izzy are working very hard to ensure that our high standards of animal welfare are maintained. We are appealing for donations to help us to survive during this challenging period. Any donations will be very much appreciated. We would love to be here for you to visit when normality returns so you can enjoy the animals and continue to share our passion for Britain’s wonderful wildlife. Every penny of every donation will go towards the care of our animals. Payment is made securely by Pay Pal. Thank-you.

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR ANIMALS IN THIS TIME OF NEED

Sadly, during these unprecedented times we have of course had to close to visitors and help minimize the spread of Covid-19 and relieve pressure on the NHS. Our source of income has entirely stopped, whilst many of our costs are ongoing. The feeding and care of our animals is our top priority. Our Head Keeper, Matt and his deputy, Izzy are working very hard and long hours to ensure that our high standards of animal welfare are maintained.

We are appealing for donations to help us to survive during this challenging period. Any donations, large or small, will be very much appreciated. We would love to be here for you when normality returns, so you can enjoy the animals and continue to share our passion for Britain’s wonderful wildlife.

Thank you
