It's been a busy week here at Blackpool Zoo as we've been doing our annual stock take. Each day our keepers are responsible for checking all of their animals, so we are constantly monitoring the number of animals in our care, but once a year we are required by our license to conduct a full census. The results of this are then logged into a central database, and the information can be shared with zoos around the world and used to manage international breeding programmes.
