A popular tourist attraction has increased its efforts to ‘protect rare and endangered’ creatures.

Puxton Park has added three new species to its range of animals.

Three giant Nubian goats, a cockatoo and some ‘very rare’ Shetland ducks have arrived at Puxton Park.

Senior animal supervisor Joseph Huntley said; “We are extremely happy with the success of our efforts to promote farming in the UK, as well as educating on the importance of animal welfare.

“However, most rewarding of all is witnessing the success of our increased efforts to encourage the conservation of native species in the UK and abroad.

“As a result of this work, we are also proud to have welcomed two new-born Cameroon lambs to the park this month.

“We will continue working to protect and conserve various rare and endangered species.”
