Animal Welfare

With the school holidays likely to be the busiest times in our season and with our new animals arriving during this time, as always we’ll be making sure that our animals are happy and comfortable with the extra attention this will bring. We will do our best to enable visitors to see as many animals as possible while balancing this with the welfare needs of all our animals.
