AWARD WINNING Yorkshire Wildlife Park made sure all their animals got a Christmas Day to remember this year.

Hard working staff turned out to deliver a variety of gifts around the record breaking walk through attraction.

All the animals, including the endangered Painted Dogs, the Lemurs, Siberian Tigers and Squirrel Monkeys, got tasty treats and revelled in ripping apart their presents.

YWP Director Cheryl Williams said: ‘We always give the animals a Christmas present – ready for the crowds when we open on Boxing Day.

‘They all seemed to really enjoy their special gifts ,which makes the effort really worthwhile.’

Despite being shut to the public on Christmas Day it was business as usual for staff, who had to look after the animals as normal.

2013 has been another record breaking year for YWP - with almost 440,000 visitors and another string of awards.
This month judges at the Doncaster Chamber Business voted YWP winners in the Excellence in Marketing and Communcations and Excellence in Customer Service categories.
Last month the park, which only opened in 2009 and is the UK’s fastest growing and most innovative attraction, won the Significant Advances in Animal Welfare and Husbandry award from the national zoo and Aquarium association Biaza for its innovative Leopard Heights enclosure.
It is easy to see why YWP is winning so many awards at it continually strives to improve the visitor experience.

The 70-acre walk-through wildlife park in Branton, just outside Doncaster, is back open as normal on Boxing Day and all over the New Year.

New for this Winter in 2013 at is the Indoor 600 sq m Monkey Playbarn - the perfect place to stay warm and enjoy a hot drink and food in the 120 seater eatery. Children can enjoy three levels of play play equipment including climbing frames, dens slides and rope bridges – in full view of the new baboon reserve through a glass wall.

The 70 acre park gives visitors unrivalled access to some of the most amazing and endangered animals, including the Painted Hunting Dogs.

Families almost feel a heartbeat away from nature as they watch the Amur Tigers from a unique 150-metre walkway above the Land of Tigers.

An 8-metre viewing tower and 10-metre wide glass wall allows visitors to get chillingly close to the Amur Leopards, the most endangered big cat on the planet.

Meanwhile, there are the lions in Lion Country, the pride rescued from a run-down zoo in Romania.

YWP boasts a unique collection of animals, including Meerkats, Zebra, Giraffes, Squirrel Monkeys, Marmosets, Camels and lots more - offering a unique all year round experience for visitors.
