Visiting Shepreth Wildlife Park
I haven't been to Shepreth Wildlife Park yet...
The Wildlife Park first started as a private wild animal sanctuary in 1979, when a young injured jackdaw was brought to us to look after. Jack recovered and soon became one of the family. During the 1980 s we adopted many other injured victims and hand-reared countless orphaned animals such as foxes, hedgehogs, squirrels, rabbits, deer, polecats, bats, monkeys, owls, kestrels, sparrowhawks, swans, doves, ducks and many other species of birds. In 1984 Terry Willers faced a dilemma when his building business could no longer support the animal sanctuary - due to the recession at the time. He therefore decided to open his home to the public in the hope that it would save the animals. Willersmill Wildlife Park was born! Since then there have been many changes. During the 1990 s we were a home for various exotic species which were re-homed from zoos which had closed down or unwanted and unlicensed pets. More recently the park has taken a new focus. The rescue centre changed it s name to Shepreth Wildilfe Park in 2001, and then joined both BIAZA and EAZA. As a Wildlife Park we now aim to become significantly involved in the European endangered species programmes (EEPâ€™s), breeding animals of conservation importance, in the hope to safeguard species from future extinction.
