Amazing Otters and where to Find Them

  • 25th May - 2nd Jun 2024
In celebration of World Otter day during May half term, join us from Saturday 25th May to Sunday 2nd June, as we celebrate all things otter!

Did you know there are 13 species of otter? At our special half term Otter Trail you can find out interesting facts about all 13, plus you can see 4 of the species right here in the wildlife park! Complete the trail for a special prize.

Find the golden paw print within the park and you could be in with a chance of winning an otter adoption and family tickets.

This half term at New Forest Wildlife Park you can also test out your creative side at the Craft Weekends. On select dates, the park will host workshops for making otter keyrings and pebble painting. Otters just love playing with pebbles!

Your little animal can take a walk on the wild side as they transform into their favourite animal from around the park with wildlife Face Painting! Taking place at selected dates and times during the week.

And as we are supporting World Otter day there will be a collection for the otter charities Himalayan Otter Network and Giant Otter Project within the park.

Also don’t forget those friendly Keeper Talks where you can find out even more facts about amazing otters!
