Fota Wildlife Park

Fota Wildlife Park in East Cork has been listed as one of Ireland’s Top Ten visitor attractions, with over 300,000 visitors passing through the gates every year, and is the most popular tourist destination in Cork.

Cork County Council is assisting Fota Wildlife Park to make the park more environmentally sustainable in day to day operations. Recycling rates have soared and food waste from cafes & restaurants is separated for composting. Landfill waste has dropped by two thirds in 18 months. Fota has ensured that the newly built extension has sustainable building measures including water harvesting and solar panels for heating water for the public toilets. The park’s educational unit has a ‘Friday is Environment Day’ programme  for young children running during the summer months.
