Why we do what we do
For the love of our wildlife is the easy answer, but there is no greater reward than putting an animal back into wild after successful rehabilitation of their injuries or disease. We do our utmost to undo any damage caused by man and his harsh carbon footprint. We try and educate our future generations to ensure there is a tomorrow for many of the species that are already endangered, or those that are killed due to misinformation and superstition. Our education programme Eco-Kids was started in May this year and has been a huge success. In this programme we have introduced our kids to Plants, Wildlife, Recycling and the world around them. We have had a big come back every time a new theme is advertised. This programme will continue into 2017 and beyond.It is such an honour to work so closely with our magnificent wildlife and will continue this honour for many years to come.
