Wildlife and Animal Attractions
Blessed with an extensive coastline and diverse countryside the Isle of Man is a fantastic place to spot a wide range of animals in the wild - but if you want a guaranteed sighting look no further.
The Isle of Man has a number of animal attractions where you can get up close and personal to a variety of species.
Curraghs Wildlife Park is a haven for wetland wildlife and home to around 100 different types of animal – many of which are endangered in the wild. Most of the enclosures are walk through giving you the chance to watch creatures, including monkeys, pandas, penguins and meerkats, from just a short distance away.
You’ll also have the opportunity to find out what happens to the tram horses when they retire by paying a visit to the Home of Rest for Old Horses. Set in 92 acres of glorious Manx countryside this caring animal sanctuary offers the horses a happy and fulfilling place to end their final years.
Or why not spend an afternoon in the company of the Island’s feline friends and visit the Mann Cat Sanctuary? The animals are free to roam as they please, with many happy to stop and compete for your attention!
