Demands from the council meant we ended up having to complete compulsory work in just a few short months. The staff have worked tirelessly in dreadful weather conditions and late into the night at times to reach deadlines. The ongoing work continues, to enlarge enclosures and improve the environment for our animals.
As you can imagine, our funds have diminished a lot faster than expected. The everyday running costs can be overwhelming at times and we rely heavily on visitors and donations from the public. We have had some amazing help and support from people far and wide who have donated money, equipment and their time to help us.
Our zoo is a sanctuary that cares for the unwanted, unloved and rejected animals that would otherwise be destroyed. Ninety percent of the animals at the zoo are either unwanted pets or surplus to requirements from other zoos and sanctuaries, and if not adopted at Borth, would be put to sleep.
However, there are still many improvements that need to be made. We urgently need your help to continue to improve and adapt our animal enclosures.
