As an extra safety precaution during some of our busier days, we will have an increased security presence on site and will be carrying out random bag checks. Thank you for your cooperation and patience at this time.
We’ve recently released the dates for our 2015 Keeper School courses. With three different levels, suitable for ages 8-17, these courses provide experience with zoo animals including reptiles, primates, large mammals and elephants. Our Keeper School courses provide the perfect first steps for anyone looking for a career working with animals.
We were delighted on the 11th June this year to welcome a pair of critically endangered Amur tiger cubs. Barney and Radzi, named after the Blue Peter presenters, were the first tiger cubs to be born at the zoo in over 17 years. Their parents, Zambar and Alyona, were only introduced to each other in late 2012, but have settled down well to family life.
