Curraghs Wildlife Park

Located on the southern edge of the Ballaugh Curraghs in the north of the Isle of Man, a 26 acre site is home to the internationally famous Curraghs Wildlife Park. The most important wildlife conservation site on the island, there are in total 34 species of mammal (145 specimens), 64 species of birds (202 specimens) and 6 species of reptile (43 specimens).

The animals live in large geographical enclosures where they roam freely, designed with their natural habitats in mind. The different walk-through enclosures show animals from the same part of the world together as they'd be in the wild, African Bush, Asian Swamp, European Marsh, Amazon Forest, American Trail, The Outback and The Pampas - you can travel around the world in 80 minutes!

The Curraghs Wildlife Park emphasises on wetland species and breeds many animals such as: tapirs, otters, red pandas, scarlet ibis and demoiselle cranes. On top of this, the various marmosets and monkeys, fishing cats and lynx, macaws and parrots mean there are a huge variety of animals on show. The fruit bat exhibit which is part of 'Life on Islands' (a depiction of evolution and conservation) is a new addition as well as a new enclosure for Alaotran gentle lemurs. There are more specific exhibits in the centre of the Wildlife Park, dealing with evolution, habitat loss and domestication.

It is not just animals either. There is an abundance of native wildlife too such as colourful orchids and stately royal fern with many rare flowers growing here in the summer. Birds such as ravens (which can be seen flying the Park every day) peregrine falcons, sparrowhawks, merlins and herons can sometimes be seen around the grounds Other attractions at the Curraghs Wildlife Park include the nature trails which allow you to explore the variety of habitats, winding through different parts of the Curraghs. Relax and enjoy butterflies, birds, wetland insects, animals and flowers.

The lakeside café provides refreshments whilst the picnic area allows visitors to bring their own refreshments and enjoy them in beautiful surroundings. The outdoor adventure play area and indoor play area (for under-8s) keeps the youngsters amused, whilst on summer weekends and bank holidays, the miniature Orchid Line Railway runs around the centre of the Park. Disabled access is good, several wheelchairs are available to borrow, and there is a large free car park.
