Devastating News

Posted on in News

Sadly we are having to come to terms with the loss of our mentor and dear friend Else Poulsen. A renowned bear expert, Else became involved with the Zoo through Hauser Bears and visited shortly after Carmen Peggy & Suzy arrived in 2012. We will forever be indebted to Else for her amazing help, support and encouragement that she gave selflessly with the ongoing rehabilitation of our 3 girls. When Carmen, Peggy and Suzy arrived they were 3 traumatized bears. We have followed her guidance and will continue to and in doing so her memory will live on.  We have three very different girls now - thank you Else, we will miss you. Our thoughts are with Else's family and friends the world over. X

3 years on, the animals who perished in the devastating fire of the 14th April 2013, will always be remembered. Thank you to everyone for the amazing support received.
