“A massive thank-you”

I just wanted to say a massive “Thank you” to all the staff for yesterday’s Photography Day. Especially a huge “Thank you” to Keeper Clare for all her hard work, patience and amazing amount of knowledge, along with all the running around looking after us to make sure we all got great images, despite the weather not being too kind for us. I had a great day and I know it would not have been possible without all the hard work by everyone front of house and behind the scenes. I am so looking forward to coming back very soon.

“The whole experience from beginning to end was excellent”

My husband and I spent the afternoon and evening with a group of other keen photographers yesterday.I just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Izzy our keeper was lovely and so helpful and patient, letting us attempt to get ‘that shot’. The whole experience from beginning to end was excellent. Being allowed to sit with the animals in their enclosure was awesome. The centre is nicely laid out with the enclosures spacious and clean. We would love to visit again.

“The day was way more than I was expecting”

Thanks for a great day today, which was way more than I was expecting. As you know I have done both Mammal and Owls now, both where fantastic days and I would highly recommend. A big thanks to the keepers as they where very helpful and informative.

“I would not hesitate to recommend the experience”

I am just writing to say a big thank you for a wonderful day on Friday.  Both my husband and I really enjoyed the whole session and have some fantastic photographs. Our keeper was informative, patient and a lot of fun adding to the whole experience. Every other member of staff that we met were so friendly and couldn’t do enough for us – please pass on our thanks to them. I would not hesitate to recommend the experience to friends and family.

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.
