Throughout June our Education Team will be taking part in the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild challenge

Led by Sustainability Officer, Laura, the Education team are promising to carry out at least one Random Act of Wildness each and every day throughout June - from hugging trees to cleaning beaches.

Admittedly, we’ve got a slight advantage as we work in a really wild place, but even for us it’s easy to take things for granted. This is the perfect opportunity to embrace the wild, connect with our local environment and learn more about our native species.

Laura will be documenting the team’s daily wildness over on our Wildlife Learning Facebook page, along with lots of inspiration to help you do your very own #30DaysWild at home.

Find out more and sign up for 30 Days Wild here and get your 30 Days Wild pack, full of goodies and ideas to inspire you -  and don’t forget to follow our wildness over on Facebook!


Blackpool Zoo is Open!

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.
