Welcome to the Fenn Bell Conservation Project!
From Monday 19th July, we will be open 7 days a week until the end of the summer Holidays.
It is still recommended to book tickets online via our website to avoid disappointment. Tickets can be booked here. https://www.fbcukproject.co.uk/product/fbcuk-zoo-ticket/
We will be slightly increasing our current capacity, but still urge everyone that visits to socially distance whenever possible. Face masks are not mandatory to be worn on site, however we do not discourage their use either.
Any paying guest that visits the zoo between Monday 19th July and Sunday 5th September, will receive a complimentary ticket to return to visit us in November.
From Monday 19th July we will be offering set feeding times, where you can see our keepers feed and tell you all about our amazing animals, answering any questions you may have. And from Monday 26th July our Safari Trek will be running every day from 11am – 4pm, included in the price of your ticket!
We will continue to run our pre-booked animal experiences throughout the summer, more information on these can be found here. https://www.fbcukproject.co.uk/experiences/
Due to ongoing building work, the pub will continue to remain closed at this time, we will still be serving a range of food and drinks to our large outside seating areas. There are covered and uncovered areas available.
Don’t forget to make use of our large overflow carpark.
And lastly, please remember we will be closing early on the 21st August ahead of our charity fundraising event. More information on this can be found here. https://www.fbcukproject.co.uk/conservation/
We look forward to seeing you all here soon. Take Care,
The Fenn Bell is very proud to hold Medway’s first zoo licence. All our animals you see here have come through rescue or from other zoos. We aim to give these animals a safe and enriching environment to live in. We are very proud of what we have built here at the Fenn Bell and do lots of work with schools on educating youngsters on these animals.
We hope that you will see and understand the work and commitment that goes into what we do. If you would like to discuss any thing to do with the animals while you are here please ask to speak to a member of staff, we will be pleased to have a chat.
Take a look at all that’s happening at the Fenn Bell Conservation Project. We hold events at Easter, Halloween and Christmas. Like our Facebook page to keep up to date with everything that’s happening.
The Fenn Bell Conservation Project was started with two Kune Kune pigs, Ginger and Spice. Seeing an add on the internet I fell in love with them and decided to bring them home to meet the wife. Little did I know how taking these two pigs on would change my life and open up a whole new world for me.
Fast forward to today and we have achieved so much. We have lots of local schools visit us to learn about the animals and the natural world. We are now working with Hadlow and Mid-Kent college with their animal management students helping to produce the next generation of zookeepers and conservation warriors.
We open to all, all year round to come and be part of our ever growing family of animals here at the FBCUK Project.
Our aim is to bring people and animals together in a way that can benefit both. With this in mind, we are developing our new conservation area where we hope to work on breed and release programmes with animals such as red squirrels, with this area becoming the keystone to our education programme. Conservation, education and research must be the way forward for us all.
As for Ginger and Spice, they are still here with us. We look forward to seeing you all here and hope you enjoy your visit.
