It is with regret that we are having to close the RSCC, due to a severe lack of revenue coming in the door from visitors in the last 2 years. Our last day of opening will be August 31st 2015.
We are sorry to disappoint you all and as i’m sure you are aware our keepers and management are extremely saddened that this has had to happen. Please note that animals will soon be leaving to go to their new homes at other collections, so please bear with us in this difficult time. We will not be able to answer any messages due to this process.
Best Wishes to you all from RSCC management and thank you for your past support!
RARE SPECIES CONSERVATION CENTRE .
RSCC is home to a unique collection of some of the world’s lesser known rare & endangered species of animal.
The centre is set in 7 acres of lush sub tropical gardens, and is home to animals such as Malayan Tigers, Cambodian Sun Bears, Maned Wolf and many more you are unlikely to have seen before such as the Malagasy Fanaloka, Boky Boky or Fosa.
A great deal of RSCC’s most important work is it’s involvement in and support of In-situ conservation projects for rare and threatened species in many different countries worldwide. Many of our animals form part of important breeding programs and we house some highly valuable breeding populations of species such as Rusty Spotted Cat, Clouded Leopard, Fanaloka, Palawan Bearcat and Banded Palm Civet amongst others. RSCC was the first facility in Europe to successfully breed the Malagasy Fanaloka in captivity.
A large majority of the animals that are housed at the centre are also actively supported in the wild, whether it be funding anti-poaching patrols in Cambodia, captive breeding and release centres, education programs for local people or protection of natural habitat. The centre has a team working around the clock, dedicated to ensuring all of our animals receive the best possible care.
Many of the species seen at our facility are seldom seen outside of their native home.
