£1000 donation to charity anything but rubbish!

We recently handed over a cheque for £1000 to local charity Neptune’s Army of Rubbish Cleaners (N.A.R.C.). The money raised will enable the group of volunteer divers, who have a real passion for the local underwater environment, to carry on cleaning and clearing our coastal waters and ensuring its long term future.

David Jones, CEO of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum and N.A.R.C. secretary said:

“The continued support from Folly Farm is crucial in helping us keep the underwater world in Pembrokeshire clean. Our conservation partnership helps us not only charter boats and fund clean-ups but also raises awareness of the problems to thousands of locals and visitors who visit Folly Farm annually. Quite simply, we couldn’t carry out our work on an issue that is often, out of sight and out of mind, without the support of our funders. Together we are removing marine litter and releasing entangled wildlife.”

Tim Morphew, zoo curator, David Kennard (N.A.R.C.) and Caroline Davies, penguin keeper.

Tim Morphew, our zoo curator added:

"We have such a rich, diverse ecosystem around our beautiful coastline and conservation is at the heart of what we do here at Folly Farm so anything we can do to aid the N.A.R.C. team in their efforts we will.”
