Slot developer Pragmatic Play has made a donation of £6,850 to the only wildlife sanctuary based in Gibraltar, the Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park.
The contribution will go towards building the organisation’s North American turtle exhibit, helping to fund the refurbishment of its turtle ponds that require running, filtered water to ensure the health and cleanliness of the animals they house.
Julian Jarvis, CEO at Pragmatic Play, stated: “As the only wildlife park in Gibraltar, the AWCP fulfils a crucial part in the protection of rare animal species, and we’re extremely proud to be able to support the restructuring of its outdoor spaces and turtle ponds.
“Up to four species of turtle will be housed in a spacious pond in a prominent area of the park thanks to our donation, and we look forward to establishing new ways to support the conservation group moving forward.”
The foundation takes care of unwanted exotic pets and animals confiscated by customs, while also raising awareness of important endangered species through conservation education.
Nestled in Gibraltar’s beautiful Alameda Botanical Gardens, the AWCP also targets conservation of threatened species in the wild, partaking in international conservation projects to ensure their survival.
Through selected captive breeding programmes, they also hope to play an important role in the international effort to conserve rare and endangered species.
