Fota Wildlife Park To Share €1.1 Million In Funding With Dublin Zoo

It's part of an effort to save Ireland's zoo industry

In total, the Government has pledged 1.6million euro for the sector.

It comes as Dublin Zoo this week warned there is a real risk it may close for good due to the impact of Covid-19 restrictions.

The money has been secured for the popular Leeside destination by heritage ministers Darragh O'Brien and Malcolm Noonan.
