During lockdown Fernvalley Wildlife Centre, Tingwall, Rendall was unable to open to the public but of course the animals were all still there being cared for.
Since reopening it has put in a number of arrangements to keep visitors and staff safe.
You can book a slot for visiting and inside you wear a face mask or covering.
There are many hand sanitising points around the building and there are the sinks once you pass into the entrance to the animal enclosures.
Very clear signage on the floor marks out with arrows a one way system around the building – including out of doors.
The cafe is also open, booking available for that too as there are now less tables.
The food as ever is freshly made and excellent.
Once you have had something to eat you can visit the animals again – taking the same one way route around , if it is still within your time slot.
Fernvalley cares for rescued animals and provides educational information about them. Some of the stories illustrate just how thoughtless and cruel the Human species can be.
