The Wildlife Park first started as a private wild animal sanctuary (Willers Mill) in 1979, when a jackdaw was brought to them for a successful rehabilitation.
Since that time the park has adopted many other injured victims and have hand reared orphaned animals such as foxes, hedgehogs, squirrels, rabbits, deer, polecats, bats, monkeys, owls, kestrels, sparrowhawks, swans, doves, ducks and many other species of birds.
There have been many changes down the years - including the addition of the Tigers, Lynx and Mountain Lions. The conservation projects have included a Crayfish Rearing Project, and the animals which have been released back into the wild plus the rescue of the catfish found dumped in a bin bag.
Many of the other exotic animals in the Park today come from zoos that have closed down, were unwanted pets or are part of captive breeding programmes in which they participate.
As well as the expanding Wildlife Park Shepreth now contains a nature reserve and conservation and research programme.
There are many different animals at Shepreth Wildlife Park just waiting to meet you. So come along and enjoy a great day out - and remember, your visit helps us to help the animals.
You can hand-feed our ponies and goats, the ducks, geese and even the giant carp and the fish in the lake! Watch the antics happening on Monkey Island, home to our meerkats and squirrel monkeys, and see if you can spot the terrapins in the Lake.
Explore the Big Cat House - home to the tigers, lynx and mountain lions.
The tropical house is home to turtles, lizards, snakes, fish and even caiman and you can explore the alien world of fish, Insects and Invertebrates in Waterworld & Bug City.
In between your animal encounters you can browse the gift shop, have a snack or play in our adventure play area.
