    Does anyone know where I could find the planning documents and designs for the Bear Woods development at Wild Place Project/could anyone link me to them?

    There is a low-res PDF of the site on the Bear Woods page. If anyone has a better resolution, it will show where the various enclosures will be. There looks to be an enclosure in addition to the Bears, Lynx and Wolverine but I can’t read what it is

    Bear Wood will be home to four European brown bears, five wolves, two Eurasian lynx and two wolverines.

    It is a 7.5 acre exhibit. Over half the size of Bristol Zoo!

    And whilst the previous Wolf exhibit is being left empty for a while, they now have a ready made, secure enclosure for a new species to move into. I wish they weren’t so secretive about their expansion plans...
