Winter 2010/11 News Update
Over winter we are having a big move around of the animals to accommodate amazing new creatures and make exciting new displays. Such animals as Axolotls, Upside-down Jellyfish and African Clawed Frogs have already made the sanctuary their new home.

Turtle Sanctuary New for 2011 we are increasing the diversity of animals to which we are a sanctuary. We are currently designing and building the brand new area - Turtle Sanctuary.
The onset of winter sees a reduction in visitors around the centre but this sees an increase in the time the aquarists are able to spend with the animals.

Lilly and Lora (our resident common seals) are enjoying the extra time the animal care team are able to spend with them, teaching them new training routines.

Resident Otters Lewis and Isla (our Canadian River Otters) are doing well and looking forward to Christmas when Santa will be bringing them a newly plumbed plunge pool and water falls.

We will be getting the Otters into the Christmas spirit with some festive Christmas pudding that they will get to eat at our afternoon feeding session (3pm) from the 13th to the 24th of December.
Other developments within the centre include updating the quarantine area. New tanks are being installed and a maze of new pipework is being plumbed into make the tanks operational.
