SAVE OUR ZOO! FUTURE OF AMAZON WORLD AT RISK AND THEY MAY NOT MAKE IT TO EASTER

Published at:

The owners of Amazon World have warned that the future of the business is at risk, as they’ve not made enough money to guarantee survival through the winter months.

Taking to social media yesterday (Thursday), the Newchurch-based attraction said that during the past 4 months they have not made enough money to ensure survival through to Easter 2021. The business has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic throughout 2020.

As a zoo, Amazon World is asking the Government for help but this is not guaranteed and even if successful the funding won’t cover all of the monthly running costs.

The team says that not knowing if they will definitely be able to open again in December is also causing extra worry, although it does appear that the current lockdown will end on 2nd December.

Amazon World says they need your help now more than ever to save the zoo. Islanders are being asked to donate to a new crowdfunding page at https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/save-our-zoo-2020, adopt one of the amazing animals by visiting http://www.amazonworld.co.uk/pdf/animal_adoption.pdf or donate fresh veg to help feed the animals.

A spokesperson has said:

“Thank you so much to everyone for all your kind offers of support once again, your support throughout the year already has helped tremendously but the worry is not over”.

You bring animals from their natural habitats from other countries to this country for profit to entertain people.. I will not support zoos….

Many feel the same about ‘humans’ being brought here to be profited from by the employers, but cause lack of homes, overcrowding and the vilest of crimes for those who live amongst such. Yet we have to pay for them via stealth taxes for their subsidised rent,,c.tax, child allowance, tax credits free NHS and education costs

A Sloth is cheap and a delight in comparison to many.

You officially don’t know what your talking about. Most zoos around the UK and the world do breeding programs for animals which are at risk of Extinction! I believe Amazon World is one of them zoos.

Dystopian world its obviously you dont really care about the welfare of these animal’s.They need food bedding and warmth & love,if they run out of funds,what happens to these animals?probably get put to sleep if no one can rehome them,because all zoos are struggling in these hard times…

You will get what you wish for by 2030. Zoos closed, animals back to their natural habitat,and no cats and dogs as pets!

These Zoos may very well be the last places we would see these animals, most of them are going instinct. Having them in a zoo where they have a stimulated environment is much better then them being hunted and killed to extinction.

Also Trev a donation box in Supermarkets for such a place would be welcome by me.

I’d Rather feed the animals than donate food for those charity kept beings we are already ‘keeping’ via our taxes as they get child allowance, child tax credits, free rent and c. tax, free education and health treatment and dentistry and NOW want their clones fed too in the school hols, as it is too much effort for them to get off facebook and tip out a bowl of cereal.

I been in Amazon World in the past.. years back.. I seen how for example enclosed big cat in there been frustrated.. Pacing from corner to corner of her small enclosed space..
I realised zoos keep these animals mostly for profit.. Most animals are not happy there.. Sanctuaries rescue animals not zoos.. I seen both I seen the difference….

Agree some animals seem distressed and always leave me feeling pity, not joy visiting zoos, so I don’t anymore Last one I saw which was the best ever was in Spain, in Europe’s only desert, where almost all creatures had massive spaces and running water, but still not the same I know as being free. Yet almost all creatures were seemingly content. We can all live without having to see something shut in a cage now, with HD tv etc, and tbh, like ourselves, if we were locked up for our entire lives in a small cage, we would likely… Read more »
