Do your children just love animals? Would they love to meet some of the world’s critically endangered species? Learn about conservation efforts? Or even adopt a zoo animal? They can do all these wonderful things and more at the Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park.

Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park is a small zoo on the outskirts of Cannon Hill Park that has been inviting members of the public to visit since 1974 and has plenty of things for families to see and do.

Learn about wildlife conservation and breeding programs

Unfortunately some animals are more at risk of extinction in the wild than others. Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Park plays a big part in the conservation of some of these endangered animals at risk of extinction through its breeding program.

Some of the rare and endangered species who live at the zoo include the northern bald ibis, one of the world’s most endangered species of birds, the critically endangered yellow-breasted capuchin and the radiated tortoise.

The park works alongside other conservation parks and zoos to build healthy populations of endangered species and maintain numbers of these animals. They also run a number of important activities and events aimed at raising awareness of the many threats to these endangered species and their habitats.

The zoo runs various seasonal events including Christmas activities and Santa visits, Halloween competitions, Easter activities, regular ghost hunts, half term and summer school holiday activities.

Animal Sponsorship

If you would like to contribute to conservation, or even buy a unique gift for someone, you can sponsor an animal at the park. You can buy it for yourself or someone else and the sponsorship lasts for 12 months. The minimum sponsorship donation is £25, and you will receive two free visits to the park, an animal ID card, an information sheet about your animal and a token of thanks on the tree in the park reception.
