The Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is currently closed

The Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is currently closed to the public, following the advice of Public Health England to limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. The welfare of our visitors, staff and animals remains our top priority.

Over the coming days we will be in touch with all annual pass holders and visitors who have pre-booked an animal experience. All annual passes have been frozen from 21st March to the date of reopening.

Should you wish to help the Oasis at this challenging time, please consider making a donation to our GoFundMe appeal, or take a look at other ways to support us. The charity that owns and operates the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis receives no government funding - we are entirely dependent on the generosity of our visitors and supporters to survive. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Oasis soon.
