Pragmatic Play donates £6,850 to Gibraltar Wildlife Park

Content provider Pragmatic Play has contributed almost £7,000 ($8,243) to a wildlife sanctuary in Gibraltar.

The Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park (AWCP) is home to several native and exotic animal species, including a new exhibit of North American tortoises.

Pragmatic’s donation totals £6,850 and will help the AWCP renovate its turtle ponds, which require running, filtered water to keep the animals healthy and clean.

Julian Jarvis, CEO of Pragmatic Play, commented on the AWCP turtle exhibit: “Up to four species of turtles will be housed in a spacious pond in a significant area of ​​the park thanks to our donation, and we look forward to to establish new ways to support the conservation group moving forward.

Located in the Alameda Botanical Gardens, the AWCP is Gibraltar’s only wildlife sanctuary. The park takes care of unwanted exotic pets and animals confiscated by customs, such as the cotton-headed tamarin, as well as other animals on loan from international zoos.

Its broader goal is to raise awareness of important endangered species through conservation education.

The AWCP also participates in international conservation projects both in the wild and through captive breeding programs. Ultimately, the park wants to play “an important role in the international effort to conserve rare and at-risk groups.”

“As Gibraltar’s only wildlife park, the AWCP plays a crucial role in protecting rare animal species, and we are extremely proud to be able to support the redesign of its outdoor areas and turtle ponds,” Jarvis added. .
