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.
