Yorkshire – ‘Summer in the City’

31.5.2022 – Photos by Sheila and Philip Baker

The Yorkshire Wildlife Park with it’s big area offers home for many species. We have already met the polar bears many times in this magazine so I thought it’s time to present some of the other inhabitants in this park.

Two Bactrian camel calves have been born at Yorkshire Wildlife Park in a camel baby boom. This is one of them with the mother.


The red pandas are always a delight for our eyes.



It’s easy to understand why these cuties are even called cat pandas.


The enclosures are wonderful meadows with green grass and lots of flowers. What a nice ‘city’!

This rhino loves to take a walk in this lovely meadow.


A hot Summer day makes everybody thirsty but luckily there’s a nice drink bar available.


The lion couple looks like a king and a queen – which they, of course, are!



This beautiful tiger lady is Tschuna.



Here’s her friend Sayan


Freya seems to have seen something very interesting.


How wonderful it is to lay on the green grass and let the sun rays warm me!


I wonder if this Big Thinker is worried about the situation in our planet ….


Of course, I just have to show you a photo of Luka wishing you all a relaxed and cosy Summer day. 🙂

  1. Dear Mervi!
    Wow, these are a lot of wonderful animals that unfortunately don’t get as much attention here but at least sometimes deserve as much attention as the polar bears. Thank you for introducing them to us!
    Whether cute and cuddly or big and impressive, whether striped, spotted or plain, they are all beautiful and have, at least temporarily, an almost perfect home in YWP!


  2. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to all the animals in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

  3. Dear Mervi, Sheila and Philip!
    Thank you for introducing the other zoo residents to us. The red pandas are very cute. It is great to see Tschuna, who was born in the zoo Wuppertal. The lions look majestic.

  4. Dear Sheila, Philip and Mervi
    Thank you for this chance to meet some of the many animals at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
    Although I spend most of my time with the Polar Bears I always try to see as many of the other animals as I can.
    The photos here are the result of Sheila and Philip making good use of their camera equipment and being regular visitors to YWP

  5. All die schönen Kaetzchen! Danke fĂŒr die wunderbaren Bilder.

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe, Erika
