Shepreth Wildlife Park

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 working alongside Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity (SWCC). The wildife park also won the Hidden Gem Award at the Hertfordshire Tourism Awrds 2018.

Today, there are over 100 species to see and meet, with keeper talks and demonstrations 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 young, inspiring minds, the education team are on hand to amaze with their ‘Discovery Experience' allowing children the opportunity to face their fears and expand their knowledge with an all-sensory, hands-on bug encounter.

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.

As members of BIAZA, the wildlife park is progressively and actively committed to its animals and conservation, and to educating the next generation of conservationists. Our conservation work covers an amazing biodiversity of species and habitats.  We are strongly committed to education, and have a well established and multi award-winning education 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.

The associated charity, SWCC, was founded in 2011 and in addition to raising funds for global conservation, it hosts a very busy ‘Hedgehog Hospital’, rescuing and re-habilitating over 800 hedgehogs every year.
