Conservation Objectives

As well as providing our visitors with an enjoyable experience observing and learning about British wildlife, we strive to make a positive contribution to conservation.

We aim to:

  • Inspire and empower people from all backgrounds to participate in wildlife conservation activities and help influence other individuals and organisations to embrace wildlife conservation objectives.
  • Participate in recognised captive breeding programmes.
  • Provide an environment for scientific research and study.
  • Develop and manage adjoining former agricultural land as suitable habitat for local wildlife.

“If you talk to animals they will talk with you and you will know each other.

If you do not talk to them you will not know them, and what you do not know you will fear. What one fears one destroys.”

Chief Dan George

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

Every penny of every donation will go towards the care of our animals.
