Discover Porfell Wildlife Park
Visit Cornwall’s biggest exotic animal sanctuary
Porfell Wildlife Park is a wild family attraction only a few miles from Looe in South East Cornwall. It offers sanctuary to many different animals from around the world. They might be neglected, injured, imported illegally or simply no longer wanted. For whatever reason they come to us, they’re always welcome.
Animals call it home
Since 1989, we’ve created homes designed to suit each species’ individual needs. The result is a living attraction quite unlike a zoo. Here children (and adults!) can get up close to wildlife, feed the animals, touch them and learn all about the natural world.
Our animals need you!
Adopt Sparky and help Porfell carry on its vital work.
