Lakeland Wildlife Oasis by Andy WallaceAt the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis, the story of life on earth is conveyed by working models, interactive displays, and live animals. The collection of animals is varied and includes starfish, snakes, chameleons, monkeys, flying foxes, and poison arrow frogs.

There are projection microscopes to see marine life. A butterfly hall and a tropical hall with reptiles and birds are part of the indoor attractions. Other exhibits include a colony of leaf cutter ants.

Shark display by Andy WallaceVisitors may do fossil rubbings and pet the snakes. For children there is an animal stamping trail. The centre participates in an international breeding program for threatened species. Some of these at the centre are the waldrapp ibis and the fossa (from Madagascar).

Lakeland Wildlife Oasis located at Hale, Milnthorpe, LA7 7BW on the A6.
