Thank you all for your concern regarding our Welsh Wildlife Centre.
We would like to confirm that there is no cause for alarm. Yesterday part of a decorative glass panel at the Welsh Wildlife Centre suddenly broke. No-one was hurt but we immediately evacuated the building as a precautionary measure. We have been in contact with glass engineer experts whose initial advice is that this is a highly unusual incident that is unlikely to affect any other glass at the Centre. We are arranging a visit from an expert to confirm this as soon as we can so that we can reopen the Visitor Centre.
It is most unfortunate that this has happened during the summer holidays. As well as not wanting to disappoint our visitors, all profits from our visitor centres support the conservation work of our charity and we just hope that our work for wildlife is not impacted too greatly.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
