Fernvalley is the most northerly wildlife centre in the UK, located in the stunning Orkney Islands in the far north of Scotland.

The centre specialises in offering a safe, loving forever home to animals that have been abused or abandoned. We also take in surplus animals that are looking for new homes from zoos and wildlife centres.

We are to have a wide range of animals from lizards to snakes and turtles.
Keep watching this space for new arrivals!


Stage 1

As we are a new build not all of our animals will be coming into the centre for opening. We hope to gradually introduce new species. Our stage one entries will be our reptiles. These little guys have already arrived and are currently in the process of settling in!

We have, presently, given forever homes to over 14 rescue reptiles with the hope of many more to come in the near future.

Stage 2

This will consist of the introduction of some mammal species to the centre and hopefully some tropical frogs. Mammals will include meerkats. The hope is to get these species in just before or very soon after intial opening.


Stage 3

Stage three will be the collection of animals increasing gradually in size to compliment our educational focuses which will consist of life in the rainforest and life in the desert.


So stay in touch and be sure to visit our website and facebook page to see new arrivals and animal updates!
