Manor Wildlife Park
Manor Wildlife Park is a conservation-led zoo set in 52 acres of Pembrokeshire Parkland. Here you’ll find endangered species from all corners of the world in a natural and beautiful corner of West Wales.
The Manor Wildlife Park has a mission to protect and secure endangered species ecosystems. Ex-situ animals have been introduced to a natural Pembrokeshire landscape. Single and multi-species enclosures have been cleverly created with as few apparent boundaries as possible, to give visitors the impression of free roam while ensuring the safety of both human and non-human animals. The park was taken over by Anna Ryder Richardson and husband Colin MacDougall in the Spring of 2008. Since then there have been major, conservation-led changes at Manor Park. The park is working on a major renovation project to bring it from a seriously dilapidated outdated animal park to a world class animal facility. With strong commitments to ethical trading and education Manor Park recognises the need for continual improvement and understands the role it has to play in the community. While concentrating on endangered species, the team at Manor House fully realises that animal welfare must be their top priority.
The new team has consulted widely and nurtured a plan with an exciting new vision for the development of an innovative wildlife facility. The plan will deliver economic security for the park, whilst impacting very positively on the delivery of cultural, social, educational and conservational benefits for Wales. We want our visitors to connect with animals and their environments, connect with natural surroundings, connect with the environment and the serious challenges and threats facing the survival of the planet. We want people to make connections, and understand the inter-connectedness of flora, fauna and world climates or biomes.
