The park was created and developed solely by David Gill. At the time of construction back in 1993/4 he was an animal nutritionist with no connection to zoo's, but a desire to see education and conservation brought into the public awareness by the reality of a close wild experience, an experience for all to react to assist worldwide conservation issues. David built the Park with his own hands and to this day, still designs and builds all the facilities around the park - now with the help and assistance of the large staff. MORE
