“In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught” (Baba Dioum, 1968)
These days, zoos and wildlife parks have a vital role to play in educating people about wildlife and its conservation. Our planet’s true wealth – its biodiversity – has never looked more fragile. It will survive only if people are taught to realise its value and to care.
The Curraghs Wildlife Park, with its unique wetland setting and animals from around the world, is an exciting and inspirational place of learning for all ages. Nothing compares to coming face to face with real animals – with their help we can make learning an unforgettable experience.
Our successful programme of education for schools has been developing since 1999, and has since then reached many thousands of school students. In 2009 the Park won a prestigious national BIAZA award for “Best Education Project”, recognising the high standard we have set ourselves.
