The worst of the storm has passed and thankfully all our animals and staff are safe. However, sitting on the shores of Sandown Bay the sanctuary felt the full power of Storm Eunice and our grounds took a real battering.
As you can see, trees were uprooted and several buildings suffered structural damage. The good news is the site is secure and the animals are safe in their bedrooms for the night but the hard work begins in earnest to repair the damage.
We are confident that we will be able to open tomorrow but there is a lot of work for the team to get through first. Thank you for your patience and we promise to update you first thing in the morning.
Thank you for your continued support and all the wonderful messages sent in for our staff and animals today, they meant so much to the team here. We hope you are all safe too.
Together We Can Make A Difference….Together We Roar
