The British Wildlife Centre was started in 1997 by David Mills. Before then, David had a successful herd of pedigree Jersey cows on the site of what is now the wildlife centre. Since 1971 the rich milk and cream of the Venn herd of Jerseys was supplied to local homes and businesses.

In 1994 David ceased farming in order to realise a second dream of setting up a centre to educate people about our native wildlife. At first we were only open to pre-booked groups, but in 2000 we were able to open to the public.

We have been growing slowly but steadily since, enhancing the Centre to give visitors more to see and more to learn about Britain’s fascinating wildlife. Our objective remains the same - to help people learn more about our native wildlife in the hope that they too will want to protect it for future generations to enjoy.

We are a privately owned organisation and the vast majority of our profits are ploughed back into improving the accommodation for animals, on breeding programmes, habitat conservation and providing the best experience we can for our visitors.
