About Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Yorkshire Wildlife Park opened in 2009 and is now a conservation centre for animal welfare, housing over 300 animals of 60 different species. The park began to expand as soon as it opened in 2006 and has not stopped since, and today there is a considerable amount of visitors each year, with 682, 000 walking through its doors, a huge contrast to the 66,000 that came in its first year. The wildlife park has received a lot of positive press over the years, in 2009 the News of the World launched a campaign that raised 150, 000 for the lion rescue campaign at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. They encourage their visitors as they aim to provide a greater understanding of the natural world for everyone, as well as creating a safe conservation centre environment for the animals that they house. They want to encourage the support of conservation and welfare from the British public and beyond. The Yorkshire Wildlife Park is an educational, fun day out for people of all ages, with loads to do both for those that like a bit of adventure as well as those that simply want to explore.

Events and Attractions at Yorkshire Wildlife Park

There is always something going on at the Yorkshire Wildlife park and different areas house different animals. The website does a good job of guiding you around all of the areas which include:

Lion Country


The lions that are housed in the lion country part of the park are an endangered species and were rescued from Romania. In the park, they are able to roam free and you can see them in their natural habitat. In 2015, the Yorkshire Wildlife Park launched an official campaign to start rescuing lions in the wild. They hope to raise enough money so that the lions are fully protected in places such as Mozambique. With the money, they hope to get rangers that can closely monitor the safety of the lions. Yorkshire Wildlife Park offers a walk-through experience allowing you to get up close and personal with these wonderful creatures.

Polar Bears

‘Project Polar’ is another project by the Yorkshire Wildlife Park to help those that are endangered. There are opportunities to give a small donation to the cause when you are at the park.
