INFORMATION ON REOPENING

CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE (COVID – 19 Restrictions)

REOPENING DATE TO BE CONFIRMED SOON

YOU CAN HELP US DURING THIS TIME AT THIS LINK

The following changes will be implemented in order to safeguard you, our staff and animals.

  • On 21.03.20 the wildlife park closed to safeguard our staff and animals to ensure animal welfare standards remained consistently high.
  • The government announced (10.06.20) zoos maybe able to reopen from 15.06.20.
  • We still require our licensing authority to approve our reopening plan and then continue to make the necessary changes to make the site safe for our visitors.
  • We hope to reopen for our current annual pass holders (bought before 9th June 2020) from 17th June, and then to the public from 22nd June. These dates are still pending approval.
  • We will not be able to allow any visitors into the grounds without a pre-paid Wildlife Walk ticket which can be purchased from our website soon.
  • Please DO NOT turn up to the wildlife park without a pre-paid Wildlife Walk ticket, as regretfully we will not be able to allow you entrance.
  • These strict guidelines are to keep everyone safe, and to be able to get permission to open, and remain open, from our licensing authority.There will be many changes to a visit to the Wildlife Park for the foreseeable future, and these will shortly be available to read on our website. We regret that all of our indoor areas, keeper talks and demonstrations will remain closed until further notice, so please be aware that when you are buying your entrance ticket on-line it is for an outdoor walk of the grounds only.More details to follow shortly.

    We would also like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU! Your support has been tremendous since 20th March. We still have a long way to go before the future of the wildlife park is secure again, but this is a very good start on that road.

THE ANIMALS NEED YOUR HELP: PLEASE DONATE HERE

Although we maybe able to reopen soon, our core bills remain unchanged and while we have been able to reduce some costs, the wildlife park is still a staggering £1,700 a day to care for all the animals and our initial phased reopening will still not be able to meet these costs.

The smallest donation makes a difference and is received with the deepest gratitude. This family-run organisation began 40 years ago with the love and respect of all animals at its core. Your kindness will help us to help them. Thank you for taking the time to read our plight.

We opened an Animal Emergency & Care fund. If you would like to continue to help the animals, you can now donate direct into this account:

  • Account name: Shepreth Wildlife Park
  • Account number: 11411022
  • Sort code: 16-15-19

We have two fundraising pages available for gift aided donations with special thanks to SWCC

We have also created an AMAZON WISHLIST if you would like to buy the animals gifts directly.

We are incredibly grateful for your donations over the last few months and thank you very much for your support.
