Visitors can come nose to nose with a lemur and hear them vocalize while the sloths siesta all day long.

The zoo’s educational center is filled with amazing things to see and do. Visitors peer into the world of honeybees and witness honeybees performing their specialized duties to produce honey.

Learn, laugh, and love the animals. Wildwood Wildlife Park is dedicated to the understanding, celebration, and conservation of wildlife through excellence in education, animal husbandry, exhibitry, and community relations.
