In the last three years the animal centre has seen the development of 17 new enclosures. These have included:
Dormouse facility: Home to a pair of dormice involved in a nationwide conservation breeding programme.
Butterfly house: This houses a variety of incredible tropical butterflies from around the world. The butterfly house is a social enterprise run in association with Ealing Mencap. The butterfly house is open from Easter to September, it costs 50p for children and £1 for adults and all the money raised goes towards developing new exhibits at the animal centre.
Guinea fowl: Sharing their newly extended enclosure with our Patagonian mara.
Waterfowl: In residence on the top pond, these include red breasted and barnacle geese alongside a number of duck species.
Chicken area: This houses a number of breeds several of which were hatched in a local primary school in a project run in conjunction with Ealing Youth Justice Team.
Giant rabbits: Moved into an enclosure built for us by Belvue school.
All the changes at the animal centre have only been made possible through the hard work of a number of community groups at the animal centre including; Ealing Mencap, The Brent Lodge Park art collective, The Challenge Network, Ealing Adult Services and the Youth Justice Team amongst many others.
If you haven’t been to the animal centre for a while, feel free to pop in to see the changes that have been going on, not only to the animal collection but also the gardens within the centre.
We are open every day of the year, except Christmas day.
