Thanks to the generous donation of webcams by Dataswift you can now watch Kumba and Vigo 24 hours a day! Whether they are snuggled up in their beautiful inside quarters or playing in the sun with one another all the action is being “fed” to you live!

Previously forced to perform in a circus, the two six-year-old brothers, Vigo and Kumba, were rescued by Animal Advocacy and Protection in Spain. They joined us in February 2019 and since then we have been working hard to provide them with purpose-built accommodation to suit their very specific needs. They are HUGE!

This is where Willmott Dixon came in!

Willmott Dixon managing director for the south Richard Poulter explains:

“Each year our people volunteer for a major project that brings real value to a community. When we heard about the zoo’s plans, we wanted to donate our skills and time to design and build a new home for Vigo and Kumba, which was also supported by time and materials from our supply chain.

“We are delighted that our efforts have significantly reduced the cost of the overall relocation project for the zoo. Seeing Vigo and Kumba enjoying their new home is a real treat for our team and we’re proud to be able to help them live out their days in comfort at the Isle of Wight Zoo.”

The two lions moved into their specially built home that includes a heated sleeping area and reinforced full-height windows that allow the public incredibly close-up views when the lions are not enjoying the outdoors in January 2020. And they have loved every aspect of it!

Watch them now as they roam and play, sleep and roar!

WARNING: These live cams can be addictive! We know from experience 😉

Note: Cats may not be view-able at all times due having additional bedroom space with no camera coverage, and their ability to fall asleep behind a rock!. Please do not worry if you cannot see our lions.
