A wildlife park is a fenced park where indigenous animals live in a natural environment. Depending on the country, this will be different species of animals. There are large and small enclosures. Often the wild animals are not fenced to the visitor. A wildlife park is bigger than a enclosure and it is expected entrance fee or a donation.

A  safari park is a specialized zoo tagged as zoo=safari_park. These are not wildlife parks.

How to map

Create an area and tag it zoo=wildlife_park and tourism=zoo.

If you are not sure of its border you can place a single node in the middle and tag it zoo=wildlife_park and tourism=zoo but the area is preferable.

If given object has its own name then name=* is useful.

You can as well add many more useful tags described on tourism=zoo.
