Summer and winter enclosures
During May – August all animals are kept in their summer enclosures, located along the short walking trails that traverse the Wildlife Park. Along the trails are a number of boards with information about the different species and their ecology. The signs are in Swedish, English and German. During the rutting period in September, the wildlife park is closed, and some of the animals are separated to avoid fighting. The animals are let out in large winter enclosures, which means that they may be harder to see. When walking in Öster Malma Wildlife Park you will also see a number of birds, such as capercaillie, grey partridge and the rare lesser white-fronted goose. During the winter months, however, the aviaries are closed as the birds are kept inside.
