Hi there from Klaus,

I'm one of the prehensile tailed porcupines living here at the Hemsley Conservation Centre. My mates and I (Milligan and Santana), love our food, and we can't get enough!

Our favourite foods are sweet potato, carrot and our leaf eater pellet! Our keepers are doing a fantastic job caring for us whilst we are closed to our visitors and your donations help look after us really well and will help keep our bellies good and full of all the correct food that we need and love!

To donate, simply purchase our lunch and you will be emailed with a link to download a thank you from us and our carers!


Donate a porcupine care package and your amazing donation will provide our porcupines with the daily care that they require. This includes:


  • A vast array of vegetables that they eat.
  • Specialist pellet food to keep them healthy with the correct vitamins and minerals.
  • Specialist supplements to keep them in tip top form.
  • Veterinary care.


Our care packages are a donation to our animal care fund, helping us to feed and support the animals during the COVID-19 lockdown. Your gift will be used wherever the need is greatest for the species.


Thank you from us to you.
