Since it’s opening last summer, Orangutan Outlook has been giving visitors a unique opportunity to come face to face with our four Bornean Orangutans – If you’re lucky enough to capture the moment you met one of these great apes in a photo, we’d love to see it!

With a whole host of species, from Australian rainbow lorikeets to white-browed coucals, birds make up over a third of the collection here at Blackpool Zoo but are often overlooked.

The health of our zoo family, which includes our visitors, staff and animals, is our top priority. In light of the most recent advice from Public Health England and the government, we have closed Blackpool Zoo at until further notice.

Please be assured that our dedicated keeper team will continue to provide the best care for our animals during the closure.

If you’ve booked tickets for any day during this closure, you can exchange them for any other date in 2020 or we can provide a refund. Please send your booking details to tickets@blackpoolzoo.org.uk.

We’ll keep you informed through our website and social media channels. We apologise for any disappointment and thank you for your patience.

We really look forward to welcoming you back to Blackpool Zoo when we re-open.

Stay safe everyone.
