Shepreth Wildlife Park
PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD WINNER – Green Tourism Week 2012
Shepreth Wildlife Park started as a private sanctuary in 1979, when a young injured jackdaw was brought to us to look after. ‘Jack’ soon recovered and become one of the family. In 1984, Terry Willers faced a dilemma when his building business could no longer support the sanctuary. It was at this time he decided to open his home to the public, in the hope it would save the animals, and safeguard a future.
In the ensuing years WillersMill Wild Animal Sanctuary, as it was then known, became a refuge to many creatures great and small, including rescued foxes, hedgehogs and badgers to name but a few, alongside many different species of unlicensed exotics. After care and rehabilitation many of the once victims were released back into the wild, but where this was not possible, they lived out their life at the park.
Since then Shepreth Wildlife Park has become one of East Anglia’s major tourist attractions participating in endangered breeding programmes, and raising over £150,000 for conservation projects worldwide working alongside Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity. Today, there are over 100 species to meet at this multi award-winning wildlife park, which takes green issues very seriously.
