West Midlands Pride at Turning 40

When it opened 40 years ago the inventory listed 447 animals including “a guard dog”, “a tortoise” and “a pony”.

Celebrating its Anniversary today in pride after the opening of a new African lion drive through West Midlands Safari Park’s stock list today numbers over 1,600 animals including the UK’s largest group of hippos, the only drive-through dhole exhibit and the Phillippine spotted deer – one of the world’s rarest animals.

So here is a very Happy birthday to West Midlands Safari Park. @westmidsafari
