Sandown Sanctuary's New Immersive Dome Is 'First Of Its Kind In Europe'

The Wildheart Animal Sanctuary.

Work on the Wildheart Animal Sanctuary's new dome, in Sandown, is nearing completion.

It's the first of its kind in Europe and will give guests the chance to see the animals up close as they walk through the forest trail.

The sanctuary says the Primate Rescue Facility is 12 metres-high and will home Lemurs.

Eight are expected to move in 'imminently', ahead of its public opening at the end of the month.
