World is constantly looking for suitable release sites for their
wild animals after they have successfully completed their rehabilitation
and are ready for release back into the wild.

"Our aim is to return adult animals to the place where they
were rescued, returning them to their known homes where food and
water sources are familiar. However, this is not always possible
for orphaned wildlife and we have to find new homes for them."
year weve been able to release several different animals into
the woods at Unity Farm. Its great not only for our rescued
wildlife but also for the woodland ecosystem and the rhyne (canal)
that runs through it."
Rayner has been a huge help and is always keen to put his skills
to good use to help wildlife. We are very grateful for it."

Secret Wood is the final phase of a three-year project and part
of our award-winning conservation area. Were really pleased
to partner with Secret World to share this fantastic facility with

for our guests to get more involved with the conservation of the
site. Our partnership aims to support Secret World with their rehabilitation
of wildlife and build on their release programme."

interactive experiences including a quiz for children to explore
and observe their surroundings as they walk through the woodland

gain a new corporate partnership which benefits the community and
