The smiles on their faces say it all.
We were delighted to be able to hand over a cheque for £500 to Darren Priddle and Jacqui Law from Extremus Dog Training Ltd. The money was raised from our staff social activities as well as our conservation partner funds. This money will help toward the cost of “Project Murwi”.
Murwi is a Dutch shepherd dog being trained by Extremus as an anti-poaching dog. She will eventually be sent to the Imire Rhino and Wildlife sanctuary in Zimbabwe where she will become fully operational and help in the fight against poaching.

Tim Morpew, zoo curator added:
Funds for Project Murwi are also being raised outside of the working day too. Kim Cartwright, one of the zoo keepers here at Folly Farm (and a very talented artist to boot) is raising money through the sale of raffle tickets to win one of her paintings.
Muwri will be sent to the Imire Rhino and Wildlife Sanctuary in March 2018.
