We're still collecting donations

On the 25th March 2021 we'd raised £2,282 with 100 supporters in 35 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.


The COVID-19 pandemic has created a challenging set of circumstances for us all. As a wildlife park, and a charity, our income relies solely on visitors like you, coming through our doors each day and enjoying the unique experience of our animals, gardens and play areas.

2020 was a tough year and whilst we hope to be out of lockdown soon we are facing a huge shortfall. Though our doors are closed, work at the Park doesn’t stop.

Our brilliant team are working hard to feed and care for all of the animals in our care, but we still have to pay for food, heating, veterinary care and supplements.

In addition, due to the amount of rain recently, we are currently flooded and will need to repair damage.

We care for over 140 species of animals from our Carpathian Lynx, Meerkats, Asian Short-clawed Otters to many and varied species of mammals and birds.

As a charity we’re asking for any donations, big or small, to help feed our wonderful animals. Your help will ensure that we can continue our mission of protecting animals and encouraging our visitors to discover more about the natural world.

Thank you!
