Media Folder: 

After a few months in semi-hibernation, our bears are now fully awake! They will be let into their large enclosure at 11am on Friday 24th March and you can win the chance to reintroduce them back into their woodland playground.
All visitors entering Wildwood before 10.45 on this Friday morning will be given a free raffle ticket. The winning ticket will be announced at the bear enclosure at 11am and the winner will be pulling the sliding doors and releasing the bears! Our bear bridge will also be opening for the summer and, as always, gives wonderful views over the whole of the wooded area.
Come down and help us welcome our bears to 2017...it'll be a great day!
