Lakeland Wildlife Oasis

Lakeland's Wildlife Discovery Centre is a unique and exciting blend of exotic wildlife and interactive 'hands-on' displays, which take you through 3,000 million years of evolution and follow the development of life on Earth - from magic molecules to mischievous monkeys.

Exhibits range from chameleons to computers, from fossils to fossas and include some of the world's most threatened species which are kept here as part of international breeding programmes.

You can enjoy getting really close to nature at the Wildlife Oasis. Butterflies, birds and even bats fly free among the exotic vegetation of the tropical halls. Lizards lounge in their open-plan enclosure, and industrious leaf-cutter ants can be tracked as they toil along their suspended rope walk carrying slices of leaf many times their own body weight.

The Oasis is an all-weather attraction. Our tropical hall and butterfly house are ideal venues for those wet days, and our friendly staff are always on hand to answer your queries and to let you meet some of the inhabitants face-to-face. Sunny days are appreciated by many of the inhabitants, though - the lemurs and monkeys being particularly keen sunbathers.

So whether you want to meet the meerkats, contribute to conservation or stroke a snake, the Wildlife Oasis is the place to be!
