We caught up with Keeper Adam to find out how 8 month old Khari is getting on with his dad, Wallace.
When it came to Blackpool Zoo’s annual stock-take, in which all 1,500 residents need be counted, re-counted and counted again, Animal Manager Peter Dillingham just couldn’t decide which method of adding up was best.
Our Education and Sustainability Officer, Kayleigh, explains some of the ways we've been encouraging sustainability in the zoo this year and outlines her plans for the year ahead...
As part of Step 2 of the national roadmap out of lockdown we are allowed to open once again.
However, we will not be allowed to open most indoor areas: the indoor eating area of the cafe is closed, as are the indoor viewing area of animal houses including elephants, big cats, giraffes, small primates, gorillas and orangutans. These animals all have access to their outdoor enclosures, however they may take themselves inside during inclement weather. Lemur Wood and Rainbow Landings remain closed.
A full list of restrictions and measures in place can be found here. Please ensure you read them before you book your tickets as they are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
We really look forward to welcoming you back to Blackpool Zoo.
