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 more than 250 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. Feed the animals | Be keeper for a day | See owls fly
