It comes with great sadness that unfortunately, we must announce that Martina, our common raccoon, has passed away.
Martina touched every single heart of the keepers, volunteers, and guests that have met her over the years. She has been part of the Paradise family for nearly 16 years and the Park will feel very different without her. The entire team at Paradise will cherish the memories of her fishing for trout in her pool, the pitter-patter of her paws looking for worms, and her sassy personality. Everyone that was lucky enough to see her while visiting or even meeting her, will know how beautiful and special she was. She will be missed more than words can say.
Martina will always remain in a special place in all our hearts.
