- ABOUT US -
Over the last 32 years, Tony and his wife Cherry have rescued various British mammals and birds and kept a number of those which could not be released and then extended this collection by attaining Rare and Endangered creatures in need of a helping hand in Worldwide Conservation. Everything from Harvest Mice to Mountain Lions are enjoyed in our current collection. We have returned many to the wild both in our own country, Scotland & India. We have just been asked to breed some quite unusual creatures called Jaguarundi, a small cat for an American conservation unit.
For Tony’s work in Conservation, Tony was awarded an MBE and was delighted that the award was presented by Prince Charles a lifetime Conservationist.
Cherry has an innate understanding of those creatures who need help. She has like Tony been a lifetime conservationist and animal lover.
Not all animals she has tried to help have reacted as though they appreciate her, indeed a Buzzard held her once for 2 hours with its talons meeting in the palm of her hand, when finally it released its grip. From then on it settled and once its wing was mended satisfactorily it was returned to the wild and visited the Conservancy on a regular basis, like many of the animals she has helped release.
