In America a place like that is usually called a wildlife preserve or wildlife sanctuary. Here in the UK (which I'm new too, only lived here a couple of years) places like that are sometimes called a wildlife conservation area, but they also use the American terms too.

Hope this helps.

Where I live in the southeast U.S., these places are called "wildlife refuges" and occasionally "wildlife management areas."

We have several near our home and enjoy using them for birdwatching. During the winter, the refuges have certain areas that are closed even to foot traffic so the wintering waterfowl and other birds may rest.
