Autumn Newsletter 2013

Autumn leaves are falling, the nights are drawing in and only a short time to go until we close (3rd November) for the winter.
This summer’s imagewarm, fine weather has meant that we have welcomed lots of visitors to the Park this season and continue to lead the way with personal, one-on-one Wildlife Experiences!

We had a great season of Penguin, Meerkat and Combo Encounters allowing visitors to experience a unique personal encounter with their favourite Animal, as well as hosting the increasingly popular “Keeper for a Day”, “Junior Wildlife Experience” and “Wildest Date” Encounters.

DSC_0494It seems the Keepers haven’t been the only ones busy this summer as Dippy our oldest and dearest Penguin has also been out and about on secret adventures visiting beautiful Island locations!

You can follow Dippy’s adventures on Facebook and by visiting his website

The Wallaby Joeys that were so tiny earlier in the summer are spending more time hopping about in Wallaby Walkabout and less time tucked up in the safety of their mothers’ pouches. image
If you visited the Park you may have met Jacob, our adorable orphaned Albino Joey who is being hand reared by Keepers and is becoming more and more independent and very much loved by everyone!

Our Chilean Flamingos have bred very well again this year. To date we currently have seen 12 Flamingo Chicks with more eggs to hatch!

Although our Flamingos are always the last to breed they are by no means the first as our breeding duck enclosures rapidly became a safe haven for many mums and ducklings this year!

As another year draws to a close we would like to thank everyone for their on- going support and look forward to welcoming all our Visitors again next year!

Warmest wishes From Dippy and his pals
...and all the Team at Seaview Wildlife
