Leaping Leap Year Lynx

Leap into the fascinating world of Lynx this February Half Term and discover an immersive world of feline adaptations, behaviours and facts!

This year is a leap year, which means that February has 29 days instead of 28. In honour of this special occasion, we will be celebrating our extraordinary "Leaping" Lynx at the Wildheart Animal Sanctuary. Did you know that Lynx can leap almost two metres into the air to catch their prey?

Join us for some Leaping Lynx entertainment, including our interactive and immersive Lynx activity trail*, as well as the brand new Lynx talk from our animal carers. There will also be arts and crafts taking place in our Education Centre to keep creative minds occupied.

*a small donation of £2 is required.
