Welcome to the Nature Reserve at Twycross Zoo. Our trail will take you on a journey through an important native wetlands habitat.
An inland water ecosystem, the wetlands are one of the most valuable natural resources on the planet. Immobilising carbon and nutrients they are extremely important for water purification and act as a natural storage facility for rain water - producing large amounts of plant biomass as a result.
An area developed to provide a natural habitat for rare and endangered species, the Nature Reserve will bring you closer to nature than ever before. This designated area will provide a safe and secure home for resident bats, birds, insects and small mammals to thrive and reintroduce new species as nature takes its course.
Whether it be a leisurely stroll on a warm summer's afternoon, or a morning spent huddled in a hide to catch a glimpse of visiting rare and interesting birds or pond dipping with children, the Nature Reserve will bring something for all ages! By developing a wetland area, Twycross Zoo will continue to save wildlife on its very doorstep and influence species to thrive in a natural wetland habitat.
