Paradise Wildlife Park will be temporarily closed from Sunday 20th December 2020
Important Covid Update
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement in February 2021 we are pleased to confirm that Paradise Wildlife Park will be re-opening as of April 12th 2021.
If you are an annual pass holder with a year long membership, your membership/s will automatically be extended by the length of time we are closed.
If you are a standing order payment annual pass holder your membership/s gift card usage will automatically be extended by the length of time we are closed for and increased to the value of funds spent monthly for the time we are closed.
We will keep our annual members up to date with all the latest information on Paradise Wildlife Park/ Zoological Society of Hertfordshire via email, so please ensure we have your current email address.
For supporters that have booked tickets from 20th December 2020, we will be in contact over the coming weeks to reschedule your visit to a later date in 2021. Once we receive more information from the government regarding relaxing the tiered system, we will contact supporters with tickets with updates on when they can visit as soon as we are able to.
How to continue supporting Paradise Wildlife Park through the third lock down?
Paradise Wildlife Park is run by the charity Zoological Society of Hertfordshire, it depends on ticket sales, animal experiences and on-site purchases to continue the upkeep of our wonderful animals. While in lockdown, it costs over £3,000 a day to just take care of the animals alone. So, while the park cannot welcome even a restricted number of visitors, it continues to go without this income that would go directly towards the health and wellbeing of the animals in our care.
Purchasing Christmas Gifts for your loved ones is not only an incredible present but a major financial support for our animals. Christmas gifts currently include…
Although the Animal Support Fund has been successful so far in raising money for the animals, Paradise Wildlife Park is by no means out of the woods. Through livestreams of our keepers and animals, the team at Paradise hope their social media viewers would see how important supporting the animals are, not just for the park but for the world’s wildlife populations. From the adorable fluffy Red Pandas to the squeaking Otters, to the regal Lion Pride, every animal needs the generosity and support of the public.
You could also visit our Amazon wish list and purchase your favourite animal a gift this Christmas.
Even though we have to remain closed, we will keep positive and hope for good news soon. The reaction and support from visitors and the local community has been very much appreciated by our animals and team.
We are thinking of you all through these tough times and over this festive period. Please stay safe!
