*****CLOSED for winter, see you in April 2022*****







Can you help Porfell Wildlife Park & Sanctuary?


Our animals need you now more than ever! Please help save our animals here at Porfell Wildlife Park & Sanctuary. After being closed all winter, the park was due to re-open for the season from April 1st 2020, however due to the COVID 19 we have had to keep our doors closed. After 31 years we are in trouble, our summer season brings in enough money to keep the park running throughout the winter. Unfortunately this year due to the weather we were unable to open for more than a couple of days during February Half Term. Unlike a lot of other businesses we always have outgoings whether we are open or closed, whether that be specialist animal feed, water bills, electric & heating bills, veterinary bills, staff wages and everything in between. So we have set up this appeal in the hope of getting some help for our animals and staff so that we can survive until we are able to re-open again.

Discover Porfell Wildlife Park

Visit Cornwall’s biggest exotic animal sanctuary

Porfell Wildlife Park is a wild family attraction only a few miles from Looe in South East Cornwall.  It offers sanctuary to many different animals from around the world.  They might be neglected, injured, imported illegally or simply no longer wanted.  For whatever reason they come to us, they’re always welcome.

Animals call it home

Since 1989, we’ve created homes designed to suit each species’ individual needs. The result is a living attraction quite unlike a zoo. Here children (and adults!) can get up close to wildlife, feed the animals, touch them and learn all about the natural world.
