This weekend we welcomed Islanders to our first of the two planned guided tour events.  The sun was shining and the three tours were received extremely well.

The visitors were walked around the Shelter being shown the facilities and getting close to the 200 resident animals and birds.

The tour started in the newly refurbished wildlife unit and went to each of the Shelters departments meeting staff and volunteers whilst finding out what we do and our plans for the future.
