Here at Wild Arena, we take the welfare of our animals extremely seriously and always try to keep up with the latest standards of husbandry, care and regulation in the industry.
In October 2018 the government brought in new legislation under the Animal Welfare License, which means any business or individual profiting from animals needs an Animal Welfare License in order to ensure they are caring correctly for the animals entrusted to them. This is of course a great step forward for Animal Welfare and we wholeheartedly support its introduction.
Being based at Knowsley Safari Park, we have always been very lucky to have the advice and support of the wonderful keeping staff regarding the care of our animals. Following a comprehensive process of review, we are delighted to announce we passed our final inspection with ‘flying colours’ in December 2018 and now have our full Animal Welfare License (number 19/00498).
Under the terms of the license scheme, this process is ongoing and we will be inspected on a regular basis. As a responsible, ethical business, we will push forward with the best possible husbandry and welfare of the much loved animals in our care, enabling us to continue allowing them to be inspirational subjects for our customers..
