British Wildlife Centre



On 16th September 2011, I visited the British Wildlife Centre in east Surrey for a pre-booked photography day.

The best of my photos from the day appear here.

The British Wildlife Centre was started in 1997 by David Mills. Before then, David had a successful herd of pedigree Jersey dairy cows on the site of what is now the wildlife centre. Since 1971 the rich milk and cream of the Venn herd of Jerseys was supplied to many local homes and businesses.

In 1994 David ceased farming in order to realise a second dream of setting up a centre to educate people about British wildlife. At first the wildlife centre was only open to pre-booked groups but in 2000 it opened to the public.

The objective of the British Wildlife Centre is to help people learn more about our native wildlife in the hope that they too will want to protect it for future generations to enjoy.

The British Wildlife Centre is a privately owned organisation and the vast majority of profits are ploughed back into improving the accommodation for animals, on breeding programmes, habitat conservation and providing the best experience for visitors.
