Booking a ticket is essential to avoid disappointment as visitor numbers are limited for the welfare of our nervous rescue animals.
Our aviaries are open until 2pm daily. Part of the lake area is still closed due to avian flu restrictions. If you wish to adopt an animal you must apply online or call us for assistance.
