Along with many other zoos throughout the UK, we’re hoping that our visitors will love their zoo this half term. Activities abound throughout the park, including face painting, colouring competitions, animal feeding and handling and trails.
You can visit our new attraction, Wolf Ridge, and watch the strange anteaters enjoying the sunshine.
Don’t miss out – LOVE YOUR ZOO!
Blackpool Zoo’s newest arrivals, a pack of Iberian wolves, have taken up residence in Wolf Ridge, a brand new enclosure built in a wooded area of the park near East Park Drive. The five wolves, an alpha male, Diago, and four females arrived a week ago from Woburn Safari Park. It’s hoped that they will settle down as a breeding pack in the future.
The enclosure, costing around £500,000 utilises various surface and natural elements to recreate quite closely the animals’ natural habitat. A large, covered viewing platform enables visitors to view all of the outside area.
