Going wild during the Summer Holidays!
Wooopeeee ….. summer has arrived!! What a great couple of days we’ve had – and the sunny warm weather is forecast to last until the end of the week! We’ve had some great Wildlife Encounters over the weekend and today – everyone who has an Encounter goes away with a DVD of their own images as a memento – but here are just a few to give you a flavour!
Jade Scott (above) joined us on Saturday for a Meerkat Encounter – and said she really loved it!
Catherine Young (above) spent the day with us yesterday (Sunday) in the role of “Keeper for a Day” – a belated Christmas present from her husband. Catherine said her favourite animals are the Penguins (that’s no doubt Dippy working his charm again!)
Paula Eccleston (above) is on holiday here on the Isle of Wight. She loves Meerkats and said that she just had to have a Meerkat Encounter!
Mollie Dingsdale celebrated her 4th birthday here at Seaview Wildlife Encounter on Saturday with 12 of her friends.
Gabrielle Brading and 15 of her friends celebrated Gabrielle’s 6th birthday at the Park on Sunday (yesterday).
Both birthday girls were presented with surprise adoption certificates – adopting Dippy for a year - as a birthday gift from the Animal Care Team.
Ben & Joe Nimmo (above) enjoyed a “Junior Wildlife Experience” earlier today (just look at the absolutely cracking weather!) This Wildlife Experience was part of their Dad’s (Derrick Nimmo) prize for winning our Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition last year! Parents Derrick and Sue came along – with Derrick clicking away with his lens – taking over 2500 photos during the morning!!
