Brett 110 - Volunteering Day At Howletts Wildlife Park

Debbie Carpenter, Neil Bolton, Martan Grady and Toni Stott from Brett Aggregates spent their volunteering day at Howletts Wildlife Park in Kent.

Howletts is owned by the Aspinall Foundation conservation charity and is home to over 400 of the worlds rare or endangered species. The charity's runs a number of captive breeding programmes as well as reintroducing animals back to the wild. Howletts runs education programmes to give people a better understanding of some of the world most fragile environments and the animals that live there.

Debbie says, "We assisted in mucking out the rhino sheds and replacing straw and water with the keeper who was very knowledgeable and then were allowed to feed the female rhino which was a great experience to get up close to animals when you wouldn’t normally be allowed to.  We then helped to spread out the bedding straw in the deer paddock and raked up fallen leaves to be fed to the river hogs. In the afternoon we watched roe deer being loaded onto a trailer to be taken to another park."

 The donation of £440 from the team will be spent on helping endangered wildlife preservation.
