What Every Visitor Needs to Know


  • Leashed pets are NOT permitted in the area in which our captive wildlife is housed.

  • WE DO NOT PERMIT THE FEEDING OF ANY FOOD OTHER THAN THAT PROVIDED IN THE DISPENSERS.

  • The feeding of bread, chips, popcorn, or other and excessive quantities of fruits or vegetables to the mammals and birds reduces their intake of essential proteins, minerals and fats. If you do wish to feed some of our animals, please use the feed dispensers installed throughout the Park which contain the proper diet supplement.

  • Binoculars are highly recommended as the larger enclosures provide more opportunity for the animals to hide from public view. The natural behaviour as most animals is to rest during the mid-day period and become more active, and best viewed, in the morning and late afternoon when temperatures are lower and public attendance drops.

  • Most animals in the Park are captive raised or born and are at ease around humans. Some animals, although rehabilitated, have permanent injuries or have become too imprinted on humans and can therefore not be released back into the wild.



Wildlife Photography and Filming

cougarThis is a very limited opportunity offered in the winter months depending on weather and staff availability.

The natural enclosures within the Park offer unique opportunities for wildlife photography. For a small fee you, or small group of up to 4 people, will spend 3 hours with a staff member to guide you to all the best angles and locations.
