Fernvalley Wildlife Centre Continues to Impress

It is almost one year since Fernvalley Wildlife Centre near the Tingwall ferry in Rendall opened its doors to the public.

The Orkney News visited then: Fernvalley Wildlife Centre.

And Bernie Bell also popped by to see it: Something Different Near Tingwall

It’s an incredible place, taking care of wildlife that might otherwise be euthanised.

Which is what would have happened to the 3 lively meerkats the centre acquired from Cheshire Zoo.

The centre is continually adding to its collection of rescued animals and to the compounds they are kept in.

There are lots of places to sit and rest but also opportunities to listen to talks about the animals.

The cafe runs on an environmentally friendly ethos and has got rid of plastic bottles and straws. It serves a range of light snacks, cakes and a variety of drinks. High Tea is also an option.

It’s a great place to visit for the young and the less young.

There is even an opportunity to adopt an animal which all helps to keep the invaluable work of the centre going.
