Keeper talks and feeding times

What do otters like to eat? Why do wolves howl? Have you got questions you’d like answered about our wildlife?

Then join our friendly keepers for their regular keeper talks and feeding sessions throughout the day. You can hear all about our fascinating animals and see them being fed.

At various times of the year, animal encounter sessions also allow you to get up close to small mammals and birds.

Check at the entrance to the park for the times of keeper talks, feeding sessions or special events.
