A spokesperson for the park said:
“The COVID-19 pandemic has created an extraordinary set of circumstances for small businesses throughout Britain. As a wildlife park, our income comes from visitors like you, coming through our doors each day and enjoying the unique experience our little zoo offers. The last few weeks have been some of the most challenging we have faced, with the park closing its doors to the public on Sunday the 22nd of March. This decision meant our income disappeared overnight.
Though our doors are closed, work at the park doesn’t stop. Our amazing team are working hard to feed and care for all of the park’s 100+ animals, but looking after them isn’t cheap. The park still has to pay for food, heating, filtration systems, veterinary care and supplements and it is for this reason we need your help. We’re asking for any donations, big or small to help cover these costs, and ensuring that Peak Wildlife Park can continue its mission to conserve endangered species from across the globe. ”
