As many businesses across Wexford struggle as a result of Covid 19, one such business is Secret Valley Wildlife Park on the outskirts of Clonroche.
The Family run park has been in existence for the past 14 years and employs up to 10 people during peak visitor season.
However, the park is closed with no income, but the 100 animals still have to be fed.
There are 35 different species and some of their specialised food has to be imported.
Ann O ‘Connor says the business is strapped for cash as it costs up to €700 per week to feed the animals.
