TV presenter, Michaela Strachan is well known for BBC programmes such as Springwatch and The Really Wild Show and has officially launched a new tiger conservation programme at Lincolnshire Wildlife Park.
Lincolnshire Wildlife Park is home to the UK’s largest collections of tigers and parrots with experiences such as the Tiger Experience or Tiger Tours which allows you to meet the Bengal Tigers up close and personal and go behind the scenes of what happens at the park.
Whilst the Lemur Experience lets you meet the park’s family of Ring-Tailed Lemurs.
With nearly 2000 birds living at the park, including the UK’s biggest collection of parrots, it isn’t hard to see why the park is so unique. Lincolnshire Wildlife Park is ever-changing and they always like to provide you with something new and interesting when you visit.
Nigel the Puma is a new addition to the park and has retired from ‘Amazing Animals’ in Oxford where he was identified as having a serious eye defect. He began his journey at their Animal Holding Enclosure which was specifically designed for him with plenty of space and different levels to mimic his natural habitat.
Zuri the Black Panther arrived in April but is still very shy and nervous so is being allowed extra time to settle into his new surroundings before being put on-show later this year. He is a stunning creature with beautiful markings and a quiet nature.
The star has launched the park’s tiger conservation programme TIGALIVE as part of International Tiger Day on Saturday 29th July. There were a range of activities for all of the family at the park in Friskney throughout the day. These activities included Birds of Prey, circus performers, face painting, bouncy castles and so much more.
There were performances by Michaela Strachan of her Really Wild Adventures Show, Tiger themed dance sessions from London dance school Fiction Dance and Jungle Book shows from Neverland Arts Theatre.
