WAZA Welcomes New Member – Wingham Wildlife Park

Posted: 9 February 2024

The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) is pleased to welcome a new Institution Member to the global zoo and aquarium community – Wingham Wildlife Park.

For the past 15 years, Wingham Wildlife Park, UK, has been working on bringing people closer to wildlife by educating visitors on a wide range of topics and ensuring that their animals are happy and healthy by furthering their animal welfare goals and achievements.

WAZA CEO, Dr Martín Zordan said, ‘We are pleased to welcome Wingham Wildlife Park to the WAZA community. The family-owned institution is working towards expanding its conservation efforts beyond the UK and I am confident that our members will find opportunities to collaborate with them.’

Wingham Wildlife Park participates in and runs animal breeding programmes, and are expanding their conservation reach beyond their borders, with their latest in situ project involving the Crested argus, a species which they do not have at the park. In addition, they have started to carry out their own research, such as their long-term studies on giraffe and chimpanzee welfare, as well as short-term welfare studies for various invertebrates.

Wingham Wildlife Park is also a member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) and the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA).

More information about Wingham Wildlife Park may be found on their website.
