Every year - and every day - is special at Wildwood Wildlife Park but it is always an extra special day when area schools come to visit. This year will be remembered as the year we had the most schools ever in attendance.

We receive many thank you cards and letters from the children who came to visit the zoo. We enjoy reading each and every correspondence the children send us. We love to hear how much they enjoyed their visit and all the wonderful things they learned at the zoo.
