For hubby’s name day (he is so lucky, he has 2/year), he decided he wants to go to Knowsley safari park. I was surprised, as I’m the one suggesting this kind of things. We’ve been there last year and he enjoyed it very much, especially the lion enclosure.
This Park is amazing, we didn’t even realize how fast the time passed by while we were watching the animals. There are only a few fences which makes everything natural and realistic. Also, the majority of the animals are born in the UK, at different safari parks and zoos. I believe the animals should have a peaceful life in the wild but, considering what is happening in the wild… having a good gene pool in captivity is very important too.
Also, having animals so close makes it easier to raise awareness, we’ve made a donation to a Sealion charity after the sealion show.
As there are a lot of pictures and movies, I’ve decided to make a few posts. First, you can see more pictures here. Another 3 will follow, about different animals: lions, monkeys and birds of prey. I’m going to post them 1 each week, so it’s not too much. This also allows me time to write more about them.
The monkeys were monkeying around, obviously. On our first pass thru the safari they were busy eating and they weren’t that destructive. On the second pass…I’m only going to say that hubby had to do some DIY in the car park.
