Keeper for a Day – Dr Derric Nimmo

Derric Nimmo joined us for the day today – a birthday gift from his wife – to be a “Keeper for a Day” here at Seaview Wildlife. Derric was treated to special close-up time with the birds, animals, bugs and reptiles – with the added bonus of warm, sunny weather! We really enjoyed Derric’s company and hope that he and his family will come back and visit us at the Park again soon!

I took copious amounts of photos and have chosen just a few as a collage of memories of Derric’s day.

At the end of the day I asked Derric whether he’d like to say anything and he said: “Unbelievable experience; fantastic staff; thoroughly enjoyable day; would recommend this to anybody! P.S. Watch out for the Penguin’s – they bite!!”
