A statement on the Living Coasts website read: “Wild Planet Trust would like to thank the many people who have visited and supported Living Coasts over the years, and the many businesses, and grant giving trusts which have support our vital conservation work.”
Thanks to the lifting of some lockdown restrictions, other animal parks had better prospects and were able to reopen.
Kathryn England, chief operating officer for ZSL London Zoo, said that it was “glorious” to be able to open their doors once again to visitors.
“It’s been really quiet here so to be able to see (people) coming back with absolutely enormous smiles all over their faces really is a special moment for us all here.
“We’ve really reconfigured the whole zoo so that people feel and are safe…there’s lots of signage around to remind them to keep a lion’s length apart, a tiger’s length apart.”
