Group DescriptionWelcome to the New Forest Wildlife Park!
(Formerly New Forest Otter, Owl and Wildlife Park)
The New Forest Wildlife Park covers twenty-five scenic acres of ancient woodland. It is set within the New Forest Heritage area, designated a National Park in 2005.
A wander in our Park will reveal a wonderful range of wildlife - in natural surroundings. Here we have 3 species Eurasian (indigenous to Uk) Asian Short Claw and North American
River otter; European wolf, 12 species of owls, badgers, foxes and deer. Other mammals to be seen are polecats, mink, pine martens and highly endangered Scottish wildcat, lynx, wallaby and wild boar.
You can stroll through the animal house...to enjoy watching otters swimming underwater, ferrets chasing their tails, harvest mice home-making on top of corn stalks...or the night barn for snoring badgers and red foxes.
Then try the Wildlife Walkabout: passing more otters on the way to the see the owls in their Owlery...where tame fallow and sika deer graze, keenly observed by pine marten and wildcats.
As you leave the red deer meadow, via a boardwalk, you may spot Grishkin the lynx - relaxing at home - high in the fir trees. As you make your way down to visit the family of wild boar, and on past our new Eurasian wolf enclosure, treading gently to encourage our wallabies to cross your path.
