ART COMPETITION Create Your Own Wildlife Postcard

We have teamed up with Isle of Wight studio Artfullness to launch a nature inspired art competition. Our challenge to you is simple – create a work of art on a postcard that depicts how nature has helped you through lockdown with winners having their art work recreated as a postcard and sold in our shop with all proceeds going to a wildlife charity of the winners choice.

BOOK Tickets Online

We recommend booking admission in advance to avoid disappointment for holidays and weekend dates especially. In order to comply with safety regulations we are still working to a cap on numbers, social distancing measures in place and we request you do not visit if you have COVID-19 symptoms. We very much look forward to seeing you in our outside venue for a COVID secure visit.

If you have any questions or queries please contact retail@wildheartanimalsanctuary.org

ADOPT one of our animals

If you have a particular soft spot for one of our animals, then you can make sure we give them some extra special attention by buying an annual adoption here. In return we will keep you updated on their progress and you’ll get a free day out to come and see them in person. If adoption is for you then click on the icon.
