Progressive zoos like Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens are fast becoming a last refuge for many species as their natural homes are destroyed by the greed of man. Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens is a strong supporter of The World Zoo Conservation Strategy of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. The collection of animals at Thrigby was the first to be signed over in its entirety to the Joint Management of Species Programme.
The tiger tree walk high in the trees is not for the faint hearted. It is a special walk constructed in the trees that surround the tigers' enclosure to provide the opportunity for an excellent birds' eye view.
At Thrigby visitors can see a vast range of animals including tigers and other cats, red pandas, primates, small mammals, crocodiles, snakes and an array of birds. There is a café and gift shop and children’s play areas.
