We opened YWP in April 2009 with specific goals - to become a dynamic conservation centre, working with communities at home and around the world to help save habitats and wildlife, and to provide our visitors with a unique experience. The biggest compliment from them is that they keep coming back and have voted us winners of this special award. That recognition really is indescribable.
