Great news ... our Great Grey Owls have become parents!

Posted on 1st July 2019

We have some exciting news here at the butterfly house. Our Great Grey Owls have become parents! They had a rocky relationship at first as Betty travelled from Banham Zoo and was reared by her owl parents. Isaac, on the other hand, was reared by previous keepers at the park and it seemed unlikely the two would breed.

Why we're mad about Madagascar ...

Posted on 17th April 2019

This Easter, the Tropical Butterfly House is proud to be ‘Mad About Madagascar’ with fun, themed activities taking place throughout the school holidays. During this family focused event, visitors can take part in a twice daily lemur walkthrough encounter at Lemur Heights and see our red-ruffed and ring-tailed species. This gives visitors the opportunity of an unforgettable close-up experience with these entertaining Madagascan primates.

But there is also an important message that the centre hopes to convey by raising awareness about it's fundraising efforts.

Zoo Curator and Centre Manager Andrew Reeve says:

“We have some amazing Madagascan species including ring-tailed and red ruffed lemurs. Lemurs are sadly a critically endangered species therefore we raise funds every year for the Madagascar Fauna and Flora Group (MFG) who monitor lemurs in the wild and assist with breeding programmes.

The funds we donate are vital, they fund a Conservation Agent in Betampona National Reserve, a Lemur Keeper at Ivoloina Zoo, and supplies for the Lemur Survey Team. An impressive £2,629 was raised in 2018 through the sale of Tropical Butterfly House wristbands, visitors should feel proud that they are helping a critically endangered species in the wild.”

Visitors can also see two more animals native to Madagascar; mouse lemurs, the smallest primates in the world and tenrecs, a unique species with a similar appearance to a miniature hedgehog, in our small animal enclosure and in the Butterfly House, the brave might come face to face with a Madagascan hissing cockroach or a Dumeril’s boa as part of the exciting Exotic Animals Encounters. Amazing meerkat, otter and bird of prey encounters and free flying bird and animal displays will also be taking place.

On Easter Sunday and Monday, families can enjoy the centre’s popular Golden Easter egg hunt where youngsters can explore the wildlife park hunting for clues to earn an Easter egg treat. Throughout the holidays, visitors can also meet and hold Easter chicks and bunnies as well as take part in Easter and Madagascan themed crafts in the Activity Centre.

It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Vincent van Sloth

Posted on 5th March 2019

We rehomed Vincent from Hamerton Zoo in January this year. At 29 years and 8 months old, Vincent was elderly when he came to live out his retirement here at the Butterfly House where he continued to receive an excellent high standard of care, enjoying his favourite parsnip treats and exploring his new home. 

After falling ill, the veterinary team and TBH staff administered intensive treatment, constantly monitoring his condition hoping to see improvement whilst keeping Vincent comfortable. Staff keeping vigil were with him at the time of his passing.

Post mortem examination indicates kidney disease being the main cause of death. Kidney disease will often affect animals as a chronic long-term condition and may go undetected for many years.

Every death is heart-breaking for the team who work with our amazing animals every day. For those who did get to see Vincent and for those hearts he touched, we are pleased that together we were able to give a befitting name for this much-loved animal before he passed.

In memory of the immense joy Vincent brought to everyone in his short time here at the park, his legacy will be to raise awareness for the plight that sloths face in the wild and we will be making a charitable donation in remembrance.

Lottie's Coffee Lounge celebrates it's 2nd anniversary! Find out how Puro Coffee lovers are helping the Tropical Butterfly House cafes to save the rainforest!

Posted on 19th June 2019

Lottie’s Coffee Lounge will be celebrating its 2nd anniversary on Monday 24 June. This family-run business, part of the Tropical Butterfly House in North Anston Sheffield, is named after Charlotte, the daughter of the wildlife park’s managing director Kim Bellis whose father founded the park twenty five years ago.

Known for its warm welcome and friendly service, Lottie’s has grown in popularity over the last two years with both park visitors and the local community alike. Lottie’s offers a chance to try something different - with speciality drinks and sumptuous afternoon teas highlights of the menu, you might find yourself tempted by a unicorn milkshake, with all the rainbow trimmings, or caving in to a Cadbury creme egg hot chocolate at Easter time. But mystical creatures aside, by serving Fairtrade coffee Lottie’s is actually helping to save the lives of endangered animals in the wild.  

Local coffee supplier Miko has been supplying the Butterfly Café at the Tropical Butterfly House since 2012 and Lottie’s Coffee Lounge for the last two years. Their Puro Coffee brand shares its Fairtrade values and love for the natural world. For example, its commitment to rainforest protection has seen Puro Coffee save over 33,183 acres of tropical rainforest across six countries to date and support 72 endangered species with three new species named after the brand itself. So by purchasing your favourite cup of tea or coffee here you can be assured that products are sustainably sourced and therefore everyone is working together to help save the rainforest – one cup of coffee at a time!

Jonathan Dawson, regional account manager at Miko explains what this Puro Coffee partnership has achieved so far: 

“Working together with the wildlife park over the last seven years, we’re delighted that their Puro coffee sales to date have led to the purchase and protection of over 3.6 acres of rainforest, which equates to almost 10,000 trees! We look forward to supplying them with our new product ranges in the future.”

Caring for the environment’s is not Kim’s only passion, her vision for Lottie’s reflects her love for interior design which can be appreciated in the stunning décor of this two storey coffee lounge. Previously a warehouse used for storing machinery, this impressive stand-alone building pays homage to its humble beginnings. A bright spacious setting, its industrial theme has a rustic feel with exposed pipework and metal girders set amid natural wooden floors and work surfaces and exposed brick work. A wood burning stove adds a touch of comfort and class. The relaxed outdoor patio bursting with colourful planting, allows patrons to get closer to nature with its stunning views of greenery.

Kim enthuses about her vision for Lottie’s:

“We wanted to give customers a choice of eateries when visiting the wildlife park but also saw the opportunity to create a more appealing place for local coffee lovers, from dogwalkers and bikers to local businesses who choose us as a relaxed meeting space. We even have a group of ladies join us after their weekly yoga session, which gives testament to our tranquil environment!

We are very proud to work with Miko, a local supplier and environmental champion, because we share the same values of restoring habitats and saving endangered species whilst caring and giving back to the environment. Our plans for Lottie’s may still be in their infancy but we’re creating a family legacy and I’m very proud to put my daughter’s name to it’.

Kim Bellis with daughter Charlotte

Lottie’s Coffee Lounge is open daily serving hot and cold drinks, paninis, pizzas, homemade cakes and afternoon teas. For more information see https://www.facebook.com/LottiesCoffeeLounge/

25th Anniversary celebrations

Posted on 8th April 2019

 Hundreds of visitors joined us in celebrating its 25th anniversary on Saturday 23 March.

Celebrations started with a birthday cake for the animals and fun activities throughout the day including stilt walkers, face-painting and a fun family trail around the park.

A special anniversary programme of bird and animal displays took place including a talk about the centre’s longest-standing resident – Darwin the Spectacled Caiman – and visitors learned about the origins of the Butterfly House and how it all began. The park is renowned for its collection of exotic animals and endangered species from around the world but originally came from humble beginnings and started out with just a butterfly house, a nature trail and a small café and shop.

Celebrating 25 years at the Tropical Butterfly House

Posted on 7th March 2019

The Tropical Butterfly House, Falconry and Wildlife Park will celebrate its 25th anniversary on 23 March 2019, marking this milestone event with a variety of commemorative activities featured throughout the year.

This is a historic anniversary for the Sheffield wildlife park which first opened its doors in 1994. Despite being a well-known landmark for the local area, it’s visitors may not be aware of the attraction’s humble beginnings. When it first opened it was just the Butterfly house, a nature wildlife trail and a small shop and café.

The Butterfly House opened on a shoestring on 23 March 1994, during an economic depression with three employees, butterflies, peacocks, a tarantula spider and a snake followed by barn owls, an eagle owl and later in its first season, goats and chickens. Discovering in that very first year that the key to future success could be allowing its visitors to handle and get closer to the animals they love, this very same ethos remains it’s USP today.

Now renowned for its collection of exotic animals from around the world including many endangered species, the park offers its visitors daily up-close animal encounters and free-flying bird displays alongside views of the best of British wildlife. Visitor numbers have grown to over 150,000 per annum in 2018, with the park becoming licensed as a zoo in 1994. It’s 60+ strong team of dedicated staff work hard to help connect people with the animals, and in this way are helping to promote and conserve the natural world around us and beyond.

Alongside fundraising endeavours for worldwide endangered species, closer to home the park is an oasis for native wildlife. The purpose-built pond environments have attracted the likes of the great crested newt, the common newt, frog and toad a well as grass snakes. With over 100 nest boxes on site the park is also a refuge for a variety of birds including the tree sparrow, a red data species, which has successfully seen one breeding pair in 1998 grow to forty pairs last spring. It doesn’t stop there, the Tropical Butterfly House also owns three other conservations sites in South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and the Peak District, which are not open to the public but managed with wildlife in mind to help protect and encourage native species.

Having seen many changes to the wildlife park over the last 25 years there have been some memorable experiences along the way. The Lemur Heights enclosure was opened in summer 2013 by the late Barry Chuckle of The Chuckle Brothers, a much-missed visitor and supporter of the park. The enclosure took around six months to construct with the building work completed almost entirely by the dedicated staff and is now home to 7 ring-tailed lemurs and 3 red-ruffed lemurs.

A 20-year-old Caiman called Darwin holds the title of the park’s longest resident arriving in 1999. Darwin was 200m long and lived in a fish tank when he was brought to the centre and can still be seen here now with his partner Pedra.

Andrew Reeve, wildlife park manager, talks about the exciting journey so far:

 “Since arriving as park manager eight years ago the park has constantly been changing and developing. We have grown from a 4.5 acre to 8-acre site, doubling our visitor numbers at the same time. Our collection has become more focused on endangered species, with lots of new species being added over the years, from lemurs and otters to vultures. This has driven our fundraising efforts, for example when the visitors see the lemurs here and learn about their story, they are essentially helping to raise funds for survival in their native wild habitat”.

Kim Bellis, managing director and the owner’s daughter has spent all her life at the park and will be taking over the reins says:

“As a family business we are all very proud of what the team have achieved here over the last 25 years.  The legacy of my dad’s labour of love brings it back to where it all began, inspiring the next generation’s passion for nature. Now following the success of the park, he is now able to return to his passion for plants and animals and enjoy all the new challenges the new conservation sites will bring.”

The Tropical Butterfly House will be hosting a year-long celebration of silver anniversary activities including a birthday cake for the animals on its birthday weekend. The park’s social media platforms will share memorable stories from its visitors and staff from the past 25 years encouraging them to share their own #mybutterflymoment capturing the excitement of their hands-on experiences at the park.

The Tropical Butterfly House, Wildlife & Falconry Centre is open daily, all year round and is located just five minutes from the M1, junction 31, with free parking. See www.butterflyhouse.co.uk to plan your visit.
