‘Small Visitor Attraction of the Year’ Silver Award

While Gary took home the gold award for the ‘Unsung Hero’ category, Feadon Wildlife Centre was also awarded in the Cornwall Tourism Awards taking home SILVER for ‘Small Visitor Attraction of the Year’ 2020/2021

We are proud to receive this award for all our of our hard work with everything from rescuing and rehabilitating local wildlife through to running our educational activities where members of the public can meet our residents while learning more about wildlife conservation from our amazing team of wildlife rangers

Well done to everyone at Feadon for winning the silver from our rangers to our volunteers – great work!

About Us

A bit about us… we’re a non-profit business supported by Landal Gwel an Mor. Any income we receive from visitors contributes towards the upkeep of the animals we look after; most of which have been rescued or brought to us injured.

Where possible we try and release rescued animals back into their wild environment, and when we can’t, we try and find new homes for them or often provide this ourselves. We also work with various breeding programmes for British wildlife that needs a helping hand including hedgehogs, water voles, and harvest mice.

Feadon Wildlife Centre is something no other holiday resort in the country offers and gives you the chance to get a little bit wild. Come and meet our resident wildlife and learn about how amazing these animals are.

On our activities you will get the chance to do things like stroke our reindeer Nadelik and Lowen, hand feed the foxes, take a night time walk with us and using thermal imaging we see what animals are out and about in the dark or learn the art of falconry and fly our birds of prey like Sly the barn owl plus a whole lot more…

We do a lot of conservation work at the farm, including breeding and releasing programmes of our more vulnerable wildlife including harvest mice. All of our foxes have been rescued from various unfortunate situations, plus many of our birds of prey and mammals like Shakira the squirrel.

We have six new wallaby residents at the centre

Welcome to the Wallabies

Say G’day to our most recent additions to Feadon Wildlife Centre!

A group of six Bennet’s wallabies – also sometimes called red-necked wallabies – are now living in the field next to the reindeer and their specialist high enclosure was built by our very own wildlife rangers.

This species is originally from Australia, however they have been kept in the UK in zoos and private collections for decades. There are regular sightings in the UK of these wallabies in the wild after escaping or being illegally released. However, they do not like cold temperatures and suffer in severe winters which means they are unable to thrive in the wild.

We hope all our visitors enjoy meeting our newest additions to the centre and they will enable our rangers to educate more people on both our native wildlife and alien species that live in the UK.

‘Unsung Hero’ GOLD Award for Gary Zammit

Head Wildlife & Conservation Manager Gary Zammit won GOLD in the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2021 in the ‘Unsung Hero’ category. A hero to all wildlife, Gary has been running Feadon Wildlife Centre since he launched it 13 years ago and his hard work and commitment is testimony to our success

Whether rescuing injured wildlife needing rehabilitation or re-homing an animal in need, Gary’s likes to fly under the radar (at least when it comes to humans!) which is why we decided to nominate him for the ‘unsung hero’ award. And not only did he make the finalists but he took home the gold award and we couldn’t be prouder that all of his hard work over the years has been awarded with the recognition he deserves

Well done Gary and his team!

Say hello to Owlbert, our newest member of the Feadon family

Welcome Our Newest Residents

We regularly have residents coming and going from the centre, as we focus on rehabilitation back into the wild whenever possible. However, there are cases where it is simply impossible to release wildlife and instead we provide them with a haven to live wonderful lives with us.

Our newest addition to the Feadon family is Owlbert Einstein – a long eared owlet.

He’s already eager to meet our visitors, so you may well bump into him on an activity

Photography Sessions

Some photographers visit as part of a photography class group, while others will come on their own or with family or friends to capture some unique photographs of our animals that you wouldn’t be able to get so close to in the wild. The fur on our foxes, the feathers on our owls and the scales on our snakes are wonderful to capture on film. Let us know what you want to do and we’ll create a bespoke package to suit you.
