Shepreth Wildlife Park
Conserve, Educate & Enjoy!
Shepreth Wildlife Park opened to the public in 1984 as a refuge for injured and orphaned animals. Since then it has become one of East Anglia’s major attractions participating in endangered breeding programmes, and raising over £300,000 for conservation projects worldwide. Today, there are over 100 species to see and meet, with keeper talks and demonstrations every 30 minutes throughout the day. Set in natural grounds, as well as in and outdoor play zones, warm tropical exhibits and animal encounter sessions, the park also provides lots of unique experiences from hand-feeding the ring-tailed lemurs to coming face-to face with tigers. For those a little more adventurous, we also offer a real-life animal ‘Keeper Day’, with a unique, once in a life-time chance to shadow an experienced member of the animal team and get close to nature.
We are strongly committed to education, and have a well established and multi award-winning discovery facility offering both on-site and outreach services. 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.
