Conserving the world’s wildlife, for today and future generations is time-consuming, expensive but worthwhile task. Conservation has many different aspects; from educational awareness, research, conserving or re-creating suitable habitats and environments to breed and release of rear and endangered species.
Here at Knockhatch, our primary focus concentrates around our daily educational presentations, featuring many different native, and non-native birds and mammals, various research projects but we also fund a variety of programmes; both here in the United Kingdom and in South Africa and Swaziland.
This is where our adoption scheme plays a massively important role towards our current and future conservation projects. All monies raised are placed into a specialised fund, and from there the proceeds are equally divided between the different projects we are involved in.
The adoption runs for a full year and includes:
The adoption fee for the centres smaller birds is £60 per animal
The prices for our Meerkat's and Coati's are £70 each or £100 for the pair
You are able to purchase farm food at the entrance 50p a cup
All animals can bite and can carry diseases so you must wash your hands thoroughly particularly before eating at the various hand washes situated around the farm. Expecting mothers should take care around the animals due to the fact they may carry zoonoses - More info on our Health and Safety Page
