Creature comforts and conservation are the name of the game at Hemsley Conservation Centre, with all sorts of cute and curious animals and activities.
Get nose to nose (or nose to snout/ beak depending on the creature) with one of your newfound pals in an Animal Encounter. These vary from feeding a huge lizard to touching bugs and beetles, or simply learning about your favourite, fluffy locals. You can ask the keepers any burning questions you may have and see what makes these often exotic and endangered animals tick.
Meet meerkats, lemurs, marmosets and kinkajous (whatever those are?!) and be sure to attend a few of their daily talks. Reptiles Live! will introduce you to the characters behind the fangs, while Monkey Madness! is just as wild as it sounds. They’re a great chance to learn about the essential conversation efforts undertaken by the team.
