What an amazing day Robins and Chaffinches had as they opened their Wildlife Park to parents! When the gates opened, parents were greeted by a welcoming party and were given a map of the park, so they could explore it at their leisure. They wandered round various different habitats and found expert presenters, who gave informative talks about their animal and answered any questions the visitors had. They could visit the desert to find out about various snakes and meerkats.
The woodland experts talked all about foxes and owls.
In the polar regions, visitors were told all about penguins and polar bears.
In the savannah habitat, our giraffe and elephant experts were busy all afternoon.
Finally, in the aquarium, our fish and shark experts had lots of interesting facts to share.
Visitors to the park were entertained by two “flash-mob” dances of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” and “The Monkey Dance”, which the audience thoroughly enjoyed.
A gift shop sold merchandise that the children had made and the café provided much appreciated refreshments on such a hot day.
All the visitors were impressed by the children’s work but also their amazing research and expertise.
