May the blogging begin…

Hello everybody! After a long absence the blog is back in action again.

Firstly we'd like to introduce you to ourselves, the Head Talks Presenters, and all the other Talks Presenters. For those of you who have visited the Park in the last few months you may have met us, either out and about in the Park, whilst on a school tour, through the ecology courses or most recently at the summer camps. Our names are Mark and Caitríona. Since we began in March we have been run off our feet, but until the end of October we will be here to update you regularly on the events and happenings around Fota Wildlife Park. In addition to this we hope to be able to answer any queries that you may have, through our comment section.

As many of the regular members might have noticed, we also have many more staff running around the park eager to give you talks and information on the animals. These are the Summer Talks Presenters - Niamh, Orla, Tara, John, Paraic, Noreta and Lorna. These additional Presenters can be found wandering around the park, giving animal talks or at our new Information Hut.

Please feel free to leave us a comment, or ask us any animal related questions and we'll both do our very best to reply. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
