in the 350-acre Lodmoor Country Park, only a 15 minute stroll from
the town centre is the amazing Sea Life Park. Home to hundreds of
sea creatures, and now you can even find penguins and otters to
the last 20 years the marine attraction has been visited by more
than four and a half million people. In recent times the highlight
of the visit has been the new penguin sanctuary. In an area purpose
built for them, the captive-bred Humboldt species have been housed
to ease the problem of overcrowding in there previous home. This
breed has become rare in their native South America due to humans
damaging there nesting environment.
at the park is a pair of Asian short clawed otters that hopefully
will breed and make a new colony of the endangered species. Along
side these is a seal sanctuary where adult seals are looked after
because they are not well enough to be returned to the environment.
can also wonder round the hundreds of different tanks of fish and
sharks that you wouldn't normally find in this country. There's
even a glass tunnel for you to walk through where the fish literally
swim all around you.
plenty for the kids to do, including a treasure hunt and water themed
the kids are playing there is a cafe and restaurant to relax in,
as well as a gift shop to take home a souvenir of your visit.
