Easter activity for all the family at The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon
More information

Spot the wildlife along the trail to claim an Easter treat on completion.

Spring has sprung (hurrah!) and the sanctuary’s wildlife is waking from its slumber, so follow the Easter Nature Trail around the sanctuary to discover what animals (besides donkeys) you could find living in the various habitats located across their land. Along the way, learn how encouraging biodiversity and maintaining these habitats and natural ecosystems, helps contribute to the donkeys’ health and wellbeing.

Simply find the habitats located around the sanctuary to reveal which animal lives there and use the stickers provided to match the animal with the habitat listed on the trail sheet. Once you have spotted them all, head to The Shed to claim your prizes.

This entertaining Easter activity combines family fun, exercise and brainpower and is just £5 per trail, including an Easter egg on completion and a biodegradable bag of seeds to help you create your own wildflower meadow at home. Good practice, good for the environment, good for you.

Plus with daily talks, scenic walks, engaging exhibits, award-winning gardens and, of course, hundreds of adorable donkeys to meet, there’s so much to explore with your own herd, whatever the weather. Friendly dogs on leads are welcome too!

From humble beginnings as a UK rescue mission 50 years ago, The Donkey Sanctuary has grown into one of the world’s largest equine welfare charities.

General admission and parking at the sanctuary are FREE (donations welcome). All proceeds help fund the work of The Donkey Sanctuary Worldwide.
