Update on our Hawaiian Goslings!

Take a look at how much our first group of Hawaiian Goslings have grown! They are currently being cared for by the Keepers and have very cheeky personalities!

Earlier this week we had some more exciting news as another group of goslings hatched out! These ones are being looked after by Mum & Dad in a special safe pen until they are big enough to go out into the park!

Shoresearch 2014 Season has Begun!

Each summer the team at the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust runs a series of surveys called Shoresearch, which aim to record and study the marine life of our local shores. 

These surveys not only helps to increase our overall knowledge and understanding of our local marine environment but also helps to identify and monitor changes that may affect the marine life e.g. climate change, invasive species and local developments.

Some of the keepers here at the park are involved in Shoresearch and more volunteers are always welcome!

The team were joined yesterday by Merlin for the first Junior Wildlife Experience of the 2014 season!
He is on holiday with his family this week, and after visiting the park on Wednesday he decided to come back the very next day for his wildlife encounter!
It was an absolute pleasure taking Merlin around to meet all the cheeky characters, as he had lots of enthusiasm, interest and some great questions for the keepers!
When asked what his favourite animals were he said Jacob- our adorable Albino Wallaby and Dippy our famous Humboldt Penguin!

The lush green of the trees looked stunning against the water and the blue sky that we had yesterday, so the keepers took the chance to snap some photos!
