Advent Animals at Fota Wildlife Park

Advent Animals at Fota Wildlife Park

We’ve skipped the traditional Advent Calendar this year to bring you some events in the wildlife park this December.

To coincide with these events this advent we will be running weekly promotions on our facebook page for the chance to win your choice of either a family day pass  (for 2 Adults and 2 Children) or a couples day pass (for 2 Adults) to visit the wildlife park for these events.  Visit our facebook page to find out more.

The events will be taking place Sunday in December (except Christmas day). You can enjoy enrichment or feeding time and informative talks from our wardens with a different featured animal or bird each week. It is all starting this weekend where we are featuring the Lion-tailed Macaques, you can join us in the Asian Sanctuary this Sunday 4th December at 13.00 for a "scatter feed" followed by a talk by one of our wardens.
