ANIMAL WELFARE IS THE UPMOST IMPORTANT THING WE FOCUS ON HERE AT WILDLIFE WONDERS! EVERY CONSIDERATION IS TAKEN IN TO ACCOUNT TO INSURE THAT ALL ANIMALS ARE TAKEN CARE OF AND HANDLED IN THE RIGHT WAY, AND HAVE ACCESS TO THE FIVE ANIMAL FREEDOMS.
THE FIVE FREEDOMS
FREEDOM FROM HUNGER AND THIRST
All our animals have ready access to fresh water and a species-specific diet in order to maintain health and vigour.
FREEDOM FROM DISCOMFORT
All our animals have an appropriate environment that includes shelter and a comfortable resting area.
FREEDOM FROM PAIN, INJURY OR DISEASE
All our animals are seen everyday so a rapid diagnosis and treatment can be given if they become ill. They are also housed, fed and cared for correctly in order to prevent any pain, injury or disease.
FREEDOM TO EXPRESS NORMAL BEHAVIOUR
All our animals have more than the minimum recommended space, proper facilities, appropriate enrichment and company of animals of its own kind (if they are not a solitary species).
FREEDOM FROM FEAR AND DISTRESS
All our animals are kept in conditions that keep them comfortable and stress free. On encounters, if any of our animals are in a situation where they could become stressed they will immediately be returned to their travel carriers to prevent discomfort.
