Venue type: Outdoor
Set right on the edge of the city centre is the Birmingham Wildlife Conservation Trust, a great value day out for budding conservationists!
Home to a unique collection of animals from across the world, including red pandas, lemurs, reptiles, otters, wallabies and a large collection of monkeys, it’s a great place to learn about the conservation of wild and endangered species.
Regular events aim to raise awareness about breeding programmes to protect species from extinction, and how best to maintain healthy populations in the wild. Guests can watch the keepers feed the animals throughout the day and learn all about how we can protect their habitats.

Lots of places to picnic and not too large, easy to go around with a pushchair and the soft play area was a good size. The only negative was just the one baby change when there were probably 100 parents with small children there. Good range of well cared for animals and very reasonably priced.

We visited it today with my 15 month old son, he enjoyed it very much. The place was very clean and nice, not crowded. It is very cheap, I am sure we gonna visit it a couple of time this summer:)

Always enjoyed the nature centre anytime I've been with kids.

Visited on 24th February with grandson, nice sunny day, promised my grandson the soft play area after the animals he was really excited. Went to the cafe where we had drinks and lunch and the soft play area was closed for cleaning. Where as I appreciate it has to be kept clean, why would you do it when the nature centre is open with lots of children wanting to go in there, just why??!!
