If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Five Sisters Zoo survives massive fire of one year ago

Five Sisters logoWe noted the fire that which tore through the Five Sisters Zoo on 14 April last year, killing many of the animals and threatening the survival of zoo itself and even the home of the owners, who have their home on the site.

Thanks to an appeal, and the generosity of the public, more than £100,000 was raised to help with rebuilding.

Only two of the zoo’s 13 meerkats survived, and this week there was news that they had returned to their newly rebuilt home, together with four babies (I gather the correct name is pups) they had produced while waiting to return.

The STV news item includes video of the zoo, and more of the animals that were rescued and survived.
