Are Fota Wildlife Park minimising the risk to staff who will be caring for the animals?

We are following the latest Government, HSE and World Health Organisation (WHO) advice and continue to review measures in place daily. Our animal care teams have always had a strict set of health and safety measures in place for both the animals in the park and our staff’s safety but we have additional precautions in place to ensure continuity of care and husbandry.
