Tropical Wings Zoo - A World of Wildlife
Welcome to Tropical Wings Zoo - A World of Wildlife, proud to be one of the newest interactive zoo attractions to be found anywhere within the UK, aiming to be the best small family zoo in the country!
Come rain or shine - whatever the weather and whatever your age - there is always something for you to, "see, learn, discover and do" here at Tropical wings Zoo.
We would like to share with you a brief history of the zoo, to tell you where we've come from, how we've have grown what we intend to do as we head into the future! And why in particular, we feel so passionately - that all children should have physical access to animals in order to foster a better understanding of wildlife and the natural world around them!
For this reason it is important that we provide safe, knowledgeable animal husbandry for all of the animals within our care. We are proud to employ well-trained, highly qualified Keepers with a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise at their fingertips. Specialist Animal Keepers and Education Officers work closely together to make sure that we offer the very highest standards of animal care to ensure that we deliver effective Conservation Education to all our visitors. To accomplish this, we offer many daily scheduled Keeper talks, feeding sessions and demonstrations in order to inform the public as to the many ways in which we can all contribute to conservation - whether it is on an international level - or closer to home, in your own garden at home!
So who are we?We are an all weather family focused attraction based in South Woodham Ferrers, in the heart of Essex, England - and we would like you to know what we have to offer, should you decide to spend a day with us here at Tropical Wings Zoo.
We have plenty of Wings for you to choose from, as our name suggests we have wings of every shape, colour, shade, size and description within the zoo. As we are home to one of the finest butterfly houses to be found in UK, as well as having a superb collection of birds, including many species of parrot.
Halloween is the perfect time of year to get creative in the kitchen and making food scarily fun! Whether you want to jazz up a slice of cheese on toast or go full out for a party with spooky drinks and disgusting nibbles we have some great Halloween recipes for you right here. The kids will love getting involved - or have a surprise goulish meal!!
Now that we are in autumn everyone is looking for things to do with the kids to celebrate this lovely colourful season. Here we have some great ideas, and they don't all involve being cooped up indoors! Get out and enjoy the cooler, fresh air and the crunchy leaves under foot - you can always return home afterwards for a hot chocolate and a snuggle
