Secret World Wildlife Rescue Centre open to the public this weekend

The harvest mice at Secret World Wildlife Rescue near Burnham-On-Sea are always a favourite for visitors of all ages, and for the first time this weekend visitors can go further into their world.

The centre in East Huntspill will be open on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th October from 10am to 4pm.

As well as bats and hedgehogs, visitors will be able to get up close to harvest mice and find out why the little mammals could use a helping hand.

At the ‘Bats and Bobs’ open weekend there will be morning and afternoon talks on harvest mice on both days.

"As well as meeting the mice and learning more about Secret World’s efforts to increase their numbers, visitors can have a go at setting up a harvest mouse habitat!" said a spokesperson.

"Other attractions include bat talks, hedgehog talks, specialist stalls, activities and a food court with vegetarian and vegan options. Entry is free but donations are very welcome as Secret World relies on donations to care for the harvest mice and other animals on the site."

"Donations of food for the animals are also very welcome, particularly Royal Canin baby cat biscuits for all the rescued hedgehogs on site, as well as non-biological washing powder for all the dirty laundry!"
