Bear Cub Experience
For a limited time only, meet our rescued bear cubs, Mish and Lucy, with an exclusive behind the scenes experience at Wildwood Kent.
- Help our keepers teach the bear cubs to use their senses and learn how to forage by scattering food in their enclosure.
- Help build trust and positive relations with the bears, which gives keepers the ability to perform health checks, by hand-feeding them a selection of tasty treats through the enclosure wire.
Not only will the time you spend with our energetic bear cubs help them to become healthy and happy adult bears, but all money raised will go directly towards their rehabilitation and the cost of their forever home at our Wildwood Escot park in Devon.Find out more and book now
