Our Mission

Conservation, Community, Connecting to nature - saving species together with you

Here at the Curraghs Wildlife Park we connect the community to conservation actions by educating, inspiring and giving opportunities to get involved in conservation.

We provide an environment where all ages and abilities can connect to nature and enjoy the natural environment.

We give opportunities for the community to enjoy recreation time that promotes health and well-being, both physical and mental.
