  • Annual wildlife spectacular at Martin Mere

    Malcolm Hindle

    WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre in Burscough is throwing open it’s doors on Saturday and Sunday, September 23, 24 for the annual wildlife spectacular: Animal Magic.

    Working with Exotic Zoo, regularly featured on Blue Peter, Animal Magic is the centres most popular family event, with over 5,000 people attending last year.

    Those who go will have the chance to: meet a baby crocodile and an armadillo, go on a donkey ride, see wallabies and meerkats, hug a greyhound, watch Asian short-clawed otters and pygmy goats play, get close to a variety of birds of prey or be scared by lots of reptiles and insects.

    Centre manager, Nick Brooks, said: “Animal Magic is our most popular family event at the centre. We always try to do events at the centre that provide a fantastic opportunity for our visitors to experience something new; where you can get very close to or stroke animals such as an armadillo and meerkats at one event; you can see all kinds of animals you probably wouldn’t come across in your day to day life and it is amazing to see so many children enjoy the experience.”

    The event is taking place from 10am to 4pm. Usual admission prices apply
