Attraction raises thousands for Hawk Trust

Have your say

The Tropical Butterfly House has thanked its visitors for helping it to raise almost £5,000 for the Hawk Conservancy Trust’s International Vulture Programme.

A spokesman for the centre said: “The Hawk Conservancy Trust donated an African White-backed Vulture named Zulu to the centre last year. Now 3 years old, Zulu is hugely popular with staff due to his gentle nature; he can be seen running after staff, appearing to help them clean his enclosure!

“This cash was raised during the animal and bird displays over the summer and we, along with the Hawk Conservancy Trust, would like to thank visitors for their generosity.”
