A weekend for warriors too is promised at the Highland Wildlife Park!

Today (April 14) the trail leads to Kincraig’s Highland Wildlife Park, which is promising animal-lovers a particularly Good Friday.

For the first time ever, the RZSS-owned attraction has launched its very own trail.

Sasid head of operations Dask Mackintosh: "Visitors are invited to come along this Easter and become a wildlife warrior by tackling the Highland Wildlife Warrior Trail."

Participants will be taken on a journey of discovery featuring six native and formerly native species at trail points across the site. They will also learn about each of their individual characteristics and some interesting facts along the way.

At each trail point visitors collect a stamp for each of the animals in their wildlife warrior logbook. Once all have been collected they will unlock the Warrior’s Code to uncover how they can play a role in supporting native wildlife.

Visitors will find out about red deer, lynx, wolves, red squirrels, wildcats and beavers and see what small changes they can make to have a big impact on the wildlife all around them.

Ms Mackintosh, who heads up visitor experience operations at the park, added: "We have long been the place to get up close to some of Scotland’s most spectacular wildlife, and this new Highland Wildlife Warrior Trail only adds to the mix.

"In addition to offering a fun and energetic activity for kids of all ages, it also helps raise awareness of the threats faced by our native species and what can be done to help them."

The park will also be hosting a range of Easter activities including face painting, egg painting, bunny mazes and more. During the Easter holidays children will also have the opportunity to climb inside a replica polar bear den to see how they size up against some of the Parks most famous residents: Walker, Arktos and Victoria.
