Supporting the Species Conservation
Support our native wildlife
At Paradise Wildlife Park, we support our native wildlife in various ways. We actively work with other UK (BIAZA) institutions to help conserve our native species. Such as our European hedgehog population through our rehabilitation and release program.
We are engaging our staff, volunteers and visitors
We are engaging our staff, volunteers and visitors in the ‘Spotted on Site’ campaign encouraging them to find, identify and therefore learn more about the British species which call our site home. Also, our physical initiatives such as native species gardens and tree planting which helps provide biodiversity on site.
Spreading viral conservation stories
