As usual lots of improvements being made, and this time something for
visitors as well as our animals!
A newly refurbished flying area gives our birds more space to exercise
and a better seating area for spectators. New perches, benches and barrier
are in (special thanks to Mr. ‘My wife changed her mind halfway
through’ Morgan . Just a new speaker system to add and a few finishing
touches and hopefully 2018 will see us able to carry out little flying
displays once again.
Due to extensive water damage, we had to replace the Gift shop completely.
Work is progressing well and the new gift shop, entrance and exit will
hopefully be complete by February 2018.
We desperately need to extend and replace our capuchin enclosure, coati
enclosure and reptile area. Time and funds will dictate which project
will be done first.
Estimated costs so far are £5000 for the reptile area, including
all new heating and lighting systems, a larger enclosure for our marmosets
and iguanas and a lot more space for Bruce the Monitor and Sari the python.
£6000 for the Coatis, these guys need height and space. Their 18
year old enclosure has seen better days. £12,000 is the estimated
cost for the capuchins. With the arrival of young Oliver, extra space
and larger indoor areas are required. Brian and Bim will also benefit
from an up graded heating system.
