Spring 2012 Newsletter

Happy springtime from all of us at Seaview Wildlife Encounter!
The 2012 season burst into action on 1st April, warmed by an
abundance of spring sunshine! The Park is a beautiful lush green, sprinkled with vibrant new blossoms.

Of course spring is the most exciting time for the birth of new animal life here at the Park. There are Wallaby Joeys peeking out of their mothers’ pouches and tiny fluffy ducklings bobbing about on almost every stretch of water.

As our Penguin colony is at optimum capacity we had decided to halt our breeding programme again this year. However, plans have recently changed! We’re proud to be supplying Longleat Safari Park with young Humboldt Penguin chicks for their new exhibit due to open later this year.
We’ve had five hatchlings to-date – with another fourteen eggs being monitored in incubators. The chicks are being transferred for continued hand-rearing until they’re old enough to dive and fish for themselves in their new home. We’re looking forward to monitoring their progress!
