Birmingham Nature Centre
The Birmingham Nature Centre homes a wide range of animals, both European and from all across the world! Great for a family explore and with Keeper For The Day and Animal Encounter sessions you can get close-up behind the scenes access to them!
Some of the happy animals on display in large, naturalistic enclosures include charismatic and exciting species like meerkats, lemurs and otters -which tend to be kids' favourites simply because they're so playful! The Centre has a wide collection of endangered reptiles too and it plays an important role in international breeding programmes for them, so there's scope for educational elements if you want to take the trip that way!
The Nature Centre is gradually changing its focus to housing endangered species and focusing on animal conservation and captive breeding programmes.
This will give people a chance to see an increasing amount of rare and exotic species in Birmingham! Exciting but also wonderfully worthwhile.
Feeding times for various enclosures run between 11am and 1pm daily, so be sure to check out what's going on when you first arrive! Whether you are interested in animal conservation or just having a fun day out with the family, the Birmingham Nature Centre offers something for everyone! There's even a private function room which they are happy to host children's birthday parties in, so what are you waiting for? Let's go to the zoo!
