Lakeland Wildlife Oasis 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 follows the development of life on Earth - from magic molecules to mischievous monkeys.
Exhibits range from curassow 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.
Pavan is a young male, and we have hopes that he and his mate Tara will breed.
You can enjoy getting really close to nature: 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.
Lakeland Wildlife 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 Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is the place to be!
