Rare breeds safe

Last week, The Resident reported how Omega Park was in danger of being caught in the fires blazing through Monchique. We are now pleased to report that the bombeiros, battling hard to keep the fires away from the rare breeds park, succeeded in their efforts and put out the fire. “It was closing in on the park at such speed – we were all very worried about what the outcome was going to be,” explained Jeanett Bech, Marketing and Commercial Director for the park. “However, the bombeiros worked hard to keep it under control and now the animals are all safe.” Since then it has been business as usual for the keepers and animals at Omega Park.
