Galloway Wildlife Conservation Park

Galloway Wildlife Conservation Park is now closed to the public after more than 15 years, the owners have taken the difficult decision to cease operations for personal reasons.

The small, family run zoo has been the passion of its owner John Denerley, who says: “We are closing our doors with a mixture of pride and sadness – proud to have been able to share our love of animals with our visitors and contribute towards conservation through education and fundraising, and great sadness that this time has come to an end.

“We would like to thank all of the visitors over the years, some of whom we have seen visit as children and then returned with families of their own. They have shown amazing support and encouragement and we have enjoyed their company within the past two decades. It has been a wonderful journey, we have enjoyed the ride and we hope you have too.”

Some of the animals being re-homed and others will remain on the park site. Renamed the Galloway Conservation Centre, the park will operate as a private collection within the remit of its charity, the Galloway Wildlife Conservation Trust, with continuing initiatives to support wildlife conservation and research.
