Knowsley Safari’s brand new Wolf Country is now open. A brand new habitat has been created to provide the two female Iberian wolves with a fantastic habitat, while providing guests with an education on the value of wolves in the ecosystem.
Wolf Country can be found on Knowsley Safari’s foot safari, close to the Woodland walk. Visitors can use peep holes situated along the exterior fence to catch a glimpse at the wolves and their habitat without disturbing them, or gaze over the whole habitat from the viewing platform. By using a ha-ha, guests are given uninhibited views, providing a more wild experience and connecting the public with nature.
Along with viewing areas Wolf Country also offers an educational experience, with fun facts and sensory activities for kids and adults of all ages to discover. A wolf trail leading into the woods provides an interactive experience and allows kids to put on their explorer hats and play at becoming wolf rangers, tracking wolves through the woods in order to monitor the success of the population in the area.
Wolf Country is already a success at Knowsley Safari, seeing guests discovering more about wolves and dispelling myths on ‘the big bad wolf’ that have been detrimental to the wild population.
