Have you been to East Park’s Animal Education Centre?

As Hull celebrates Love Parks Week, regular visitors to the city’s green spaces are singing the praises of their favourite spots.

But did you know one of Hull’s most popular parks hosts a range of exotic, domestic and farm animals?

The Animal Education Centre at East Park hosts events throughout the year to engage and educate people of all ages about animals and other nature topics.

It is designed to educate more people in Hull about wildlife not only from around the world, but also in their own backyard.

Watch a video of the centre below:

And hear from one of its animal keepers, Haley, who has worked at the centre for 14 years.

Hayley started volunteering and discovered a passion for looking after the animals and coming up with fun activities for lemurs and marmosets.
