Saturday 11th Feb- Official opening of the new Ken West Aviary
The aviary will be opened by local MP; Sir Roger Gale, and Wildwood's founding chairman; Ken West, after which the centre is named in recognition of his continued support for the Wildwood Trust and his exceptional work to protect the wildlife of Kent.
The new aviary replaces Wildwood's old Sea Bird enclosure which was the brainchild of Ken West but was badly damaged by last year's heavy snow. The new enclosure will hold rescued breeding waders and other rare seabirds. At 33 metres long and 9 metres high, the huge new aviary is the largest enclosure of its kind in Kent and has been designed and constructed to a very high standard by Wildwood's Ranger and Keeper teams to create a unique exhibit that will inspire and educate visitors to Wildwood for years to come. The official opening will be at the new aviary (next to the fallow dear enclosure) at 12pm).
