Support Us

We are looking to source materials for enrichment use with our animals. Enrichment helps to promote appropriate natural behaviours and to improve animal visibility to both visitors and staff. There are five main types of enrichment: social, cognitive, physical, sensory and food.

This is where you come in. Below is a list of items that we are on the lookout for, if you are able to donate any of these materials to us please contact Jan Morse on [email protected] to discuss what we need at the current time.

Buy a gift for our animals

If you're not feeling too creative, but would still like to provide enrichment and fun for our special animals, why not buy them a gift? We have established an Amazon wishlist for Highland Wildlife Park (Click here) which contains a number of specific items our animals would love to receive.
