FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY… meet our super friendly flamingos and feed them their favourite ‘shrimpy’ snack!

Head behind the scenes of our Latin American Wetland Aviary, where our group of confident Caribbean flamingos will greet you.

Our keepers will prepare a flamingo’s favourite food – shrimp! You’ll get to feed them and ask any questions you may have about this colourful species.

*You’ll be given full-length overalls to protect your clothing, but be prepared that our flamingos will get ‘up close and personal’ they might gently peck, and you may get some shrimp on you!*

Suitable for ages 11+
