WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre is flying open it’s doors on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September for the annual wildlife spectacular: Animal Magic.
Animal Magic is the centres most popular family event, with over 4000 people attending last year. Hug a greyhound, cuddle a skunk, watch meerkats, Asian short-clawed otters and alpacas play, get close to a variety of birds of prey or be scared by lots of reptiles and insects.
New in 2015 includes taking a donkey ride with Southport Beach Donkeys (additional cost), meeting retired police dogs and saying hello to North Wales Parrot Rescue. Most of the displays will be indoors so whatever the weather you are guaranteed a great day out.
Centre Manager, Nick Brooks, said: “‘Animal Magic is our most popular family event at the centre. We always try to do events at the Centre that provide a fantastic opportunity for our visitors to experience something new; where you can get very close to or stroke animals such as police dogs, skunks and meerkats at one event; you can see all kinds of animals you probably wouldn’t come across in your day to day life and it is amazing to see so many children enjoy the experience.’
The event is taking place from 10am to 4pm and normal admission prices will apply to enter the Centre.
