The Wild Animal Park is designed to allow wild animals to live in captivity as close as possible to their natural environment. Besides providing the public with a chance to see animals in this environment, the park is active in a world wide effort to breed animals that are in jeopardy of becoming extinct. They are quite successful in this effort with many births in the park each year.
We spent most of the day walking the park and enjoying the animals. It is an expensive experience compared to a regular zoo, but you can observe the effort that goes into the care of the animals and the cost involved in making the park work while managing over 1800 acres.
