Fota Wildlife Park reopened on the 20th May after an eight-week closure due to the COVID 19 restrictions.

The Park lost over €1.2 million in income during the COVID closure and faced a monthly bill of over €30,000 in feeding costs alone.

It is now welcoming guests once again and is operating a pre-booking online system to comply with social distancing requirements.
