Staff at Knowsley Safari Park are celebrating after the arrival of some adorable baby animals.

Numbers of tiny meerkats, bush dog pups, buffalo, blesbok and wildebeest calves were all born at the park recently.

“It’s great to see so many of our species breed successfully.

“Many are classed as near-threatened which means that they’re at risk of future habitat loss and dwindling numbers in the wild.”

– Stuart Robertson, Animal Manager at Knowsley Safari
