Cotswold Wildlife Park

We had a great day at the wildlife park recently. The weather held out for us and we were able to spend virtually the entire day there, without being rained on! Which is always a bonus.

All the kids loved it, especially the huge python they have there now, and the Bat house.
Added to the fact that it is off season so the place was quiet, it made for an excellent day.

The wolves, however were not playing ball, and although I managed to get a quick snap of one of them sleeping, they aren't the best pictures I was hoping for.

Still, it gave us ample material to work with once we came home. We have started making some spirit masks (textiles), have looked into endangered species and forest maintenance and environmental changes throughout the 20th century.

Also we are looking at sustainability and how our everyday habits; food shopping spending etc, affect this. And how illegal trade effects the whole of the planet.

All from a day at the zoo. Amazing isn't it. :)


  1. Ahh it is a great day out isn't it and so educational and thought inspiring. I never get to see the wolves as we always take the dogs with us. x

  2. send the bill for the cost of the trip to your LA we always do!
