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.

The health of our zoo family, which includes our visitors, staff and animals, is our top priority. In light of the 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.
