[INTRODUCING GROUNDBASE] [PROJECTS UNDERWAY : 1998-1999]
[VISITOR ATTRACTION ENHANCEMENT PROGRAMME 1998-1999]
Wildlife Park, Kirkcudbright
With the Wildlife Park lready one of the Region's major tourist attractions, the owners Phil and Pam Woods have continued to work hard to improve facilities for visitors and to extend the range of animals resident in the Park.
New features for the 1998 season include an additional play and activity area. A new building contains a food preparation and storage area and a veterinary treatment room. A grant of £ 17,000 from Groundbase assisted with these new developments.
The comical-seeming Capuchin Monkeys are actually second only to chimpanzees in intelligence amongst the non-human primates. The improvements have given them a new free range area where they can climb trees or forage on the forest floor, as they would do in the wild.
There is much for the visitor to do and to enjoy at the Wildlife Park, Kirkcudbright, - an ideal day out for all of the family. The Nature Play area and the Sandpit have been very popular with the younger visitors.
