Tropicals at Yorkshire wildlife park, Doncaster.

An array of tropics at the Yorkshire wildlife park, Doncaster.
As well as lions, limas, meerkats and tigers, i was able to identify many different tropical plants in the park. These tropicals include trachycarpus fortunei, Yucca gloriosa, cordyline australis, phormium's, a fatsia and i think a yucca rostrata. Anyway, heres the pics, sorry some are a bit blurry. (They're all a bit young but the parks only been open a few years).

Did you not find the cafe half way round? Full of exotics should flourish after this mild winter. Great place for a visit. Someone told me they niw have polar bears, is this true?
Most wanted list - Any Young Trachycarpus and/or fern.

Give it ten yeara I reckon this place will be one of the best wildlife parks/zoos in the UK. What job are you going for? Looks a fun place to work?

Well only the small ones, I'm still in sixth dorm, so I've applied for visitor service assistant, catering assistant and leisure assistant. Haha would much rather have one of the fun jobs with the animals. :lol:
