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.

Blackpool Zoo is currently closed!

The government has announced that the outdoor areas of zoos will be allowed to re-open no earlier than Monday 12th April.  Until then we remain closed.

As always 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 another date. Please send your booking details to tickets@blackpoolzoo.org.uk.

We’ll keep you informed through our website and social media channels.

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

Stay safe everyone.
