There is an abundant of visitor attractions in the Cotswolds, from picturesque villages to larger tourist sites, such as Blenheim Palace or Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway.
However, one place that draws in the crowd year in, year out has to be the Cotswold Wildlife Park.
So popular is the site that, even though it is closed at the moment due to the government’s lockdown, visitors are still checking in on their favourite animals.
Gloucestershire Live reported: “Cotswold Wildlife Park [has] shared some videos and given us a sneak peek at what goes on when there are no visitors at one of Gloucestershire’s most popular attractions.”
Fans of the site can see the park come to life through presenters Chris and Roxy, allowing them to experience the daily goings on through its online videos.
This includes feeding the park’s 27 penguins and giving the lemurs swede and parsnips.
“Although the venue’s doors are closed, the keepers are at the park making sure the animals are fed and cleaned on a daily basis,” the article revealed.
The park, which is also home to rhinos, camels, giraffes, lions and otters, will upload regular updates, so people can keep up to date with their favourite animals.
There are also webcams set up in the penguin and meerkat enclosures, enabling animal enthusiasts to watch the creatures live whenever they want.
Viewers who find they grow close to the animals over the coming weeks while the park remains closed will want to book a tour of the Cotswolds as soon as the lockdown is lifted, so they can see the mammals, birds and reptiles in person.
