Shepreth Wildlife Park continues to grow from strength to strength every year. A far cry from when it first opened its doors in 1979, to a young injured jackdaw in its days as a private wild animal sanctuary.
Since 1984, this multi-award winning visitor attraction has been open to the public to help maintain its good work. Many of the exotic animals you see today have arrived from other animal collections which closed down, were unwanted pets or are part of the European Endangered Breeding Programmes to conserve species in the wild. Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity also hosts the busy ‘Hedgehog Hospital’ on-site too.
As members of BIAZA and EAZA, the wildlife park is actively committed to its animals and conservation, and to educating the next generation of conservationists. Our conservation work covers an amazing biodiversity of species, and to date has raised over £100,000 for projects worldwide.
Shepreth Wildlife Park has a well established and award-winning Education Programme offering both on-site and outreach services to all. The park is also paving the way as a local champion in Green Tourism, having been credited with the GoldStar Award for its environmental awareness and practices.
So if one trip to this wildlife haven just isn’t enough with over 100 different species to see, this is where the Shepreth Wildlife Park ‘Membership’ card is on hand. From just £10, you can explore the park at a significantly reduced price again and again throughout the year.
There are so many different animals to meet you won’t know where to start at this multi-award winning attraction!
Marvel at the sheer ‘roar’ power of the tigers in the Big Cat House or spy upon the mischievous primates on Monkey Island.
Getting up close and personal with the residents of the park is what it’s all about.
Our newly opened Education & Discovery Centre, with inspiring education team, are on hand to amaze young and old minds alike with their fascinating facts, life-like dinosaurs and hands-on animal encounters.
There really is something for everyone, with keeper events and talks every half an hour, the adventure play area complete with pirate ship and Ringo’s indoor Play Barn and cafeteria.
