Weston-super-Mare- UK– February 29, 2024 – Puxton Park, renowned for its commitment to conservation and education, is delighted to announce the arrival of three charming Woolly Piglets to its diverse animal family. Hailing from Hungary, this breed is formally known as Mangalista pigs, a breed that faced near extinction in the 1990s, with only 150 in existence at the time. Thanks to dedicated rare breed conservation efforts, the Mangalista population now thrives and Puxton Park is proud to contribute to their preservation.

These delightful additions to the park's animal collection will join the esteemed resident Queen Woolly Pig, Mildred, who has been a resident of Puxton Park for over six years. Known for their friendliness and distinctive character, the Woolly Piglets are sure to captivate visitors with their unique charm.

Macauley Anderson, Head of Animals at Puxton Park, expressed his excitement about the arrival, stating, "We are thrilled to welcome these new additions to our park. At Puxton Park, we are dedicated to educating the public about unusual and historical breeds and the introduction of these Woolly Piglets aligns perfectly with our mission."

Puxton Park's commitment to conservation and education extends beyond the arrival of these adorable piglets. With over 45 diverse species of animals residing within the park, visitors have the opportunity to learn about and appreciate the importance of preserving rare and endangered species. From marmoset monkeys to playful farm animals, Puxton Park offers a unique and enriching experience for guests of all ages.

As a vocal advocate for rare breed conservation, Puxton Park continues to play a pivotal role in safeguarding the biodiversity of our planet. Through immersive educational programs and engaging animal encounters, the park inspires visitors to become stewards of conservation, fostering a deeper appreciation for the natural world.

Puxton Park is inviting the public to participate in a Facebook competition to name the Woolly Piglets. The park is searching for vintage or Victorian girl names that will complement Mildred's regal name. This interactive opportunity allows visitors to engage with the park and contribute to creating a welcoming environment for these charming piglets.
