Animal Escape Drills

Woburn Safari Park is required to practice emergency animal escape drills throughout the year as part of our licensing. These are an important part of making sure that we are keeping the Park as safe as possible for our guests and the animals that live in the Park.

Woburn staff members are asked to involve members of the public to ensure a realistic response to an emergency escape situation. Members of the public may refuse to participate in a drill. Drills are expected to take less than 10 minutes, where possible. Public involvement may involve leaving an area of risk or entering a building. Public will be informed if it is a drill or a real escape scenario.

In the very unlikely event of a real escape scenario, members of the public are expected to follow staff instruction for the safety of themselves, staff and the animals.

Qualified First Aiders and a well equipped First Aid Room are available on site. Please notify a member of staff if you need First Aid and assistance will be organised.
