Fota Wildlife ParkCarrigtwohill Cork - Ireland South
Fota Wildlife Park is located in Carrigtwohill, just 15 minutes from Cork city, County Cork. It is a joint project between the Zoological Society of Ireland and University College Cork. Fota Wildlife Park cares for several different animal species in danger of extinction. Through long-established breeding programmes, which are run cooperatively with other institutions around the world, the park is helping restore populations of some species while protecting the very survival of others. Some of these endangered and exotic species from around the world include cheetahs, giraffes, penguins, and zebras to name but a few. What makes Fota Wildlife Park different from the rest is that visitors come face to face with the animals as they roam freely around the park or observe twice-daily feeding times. Fota also offers education programmes and a host of child-friendly facilities such as a playground and picnic area or visit the Serengeti giftshop and Oasis restaurant. The Park also features a 2km Slí na Sláinte walking route, suitable for all levels of walkers.
